STRATHAM, N.H. (AP) - A middle school teacher in Massachusetts has been accused of sexually assaulting a child in New Hampshire.

Darrell Keene Jr. of Haverhill was arrested Monday at the end of the school day at West Middle School in Andover, Massachusetts.

The Eagle-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1j7cDPV) Stratham, New Hampshire, Police Chief John Scippa said a warrant for Keene’s arrest was issued Monday after a complaint was made to his department. It alleges the child was contacted by Keene over the Internet, and the assault happened later.

Becki Jacobson, Keene’s attorney, said Keene disputes the basic facts of the allegation and wants to preserve his right to a fair trial.

The 40-year-old Keene has been a math teacher at the school since 2007.
