RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Richmond police say a local high school teacher has been charged with sexually assaulting a student.

Authorities say 24-year-old Courtney B. Steward was arrested Thursday and charged with sexually abusing a male student attending Huguenot High School.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (bit.ly/21odqma) that Stewart has been charged with two felony counts of taking indecent liberties while in a supervisory role.

A spokeswoman for Richmond Public Schools said Stewart, who was hired at the start of the school year, has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the investigation.

Court records show the first alleged assault occurred last year, and the second sometime last month.
