BRYAN A former janitor at Neal Elementary School in Bryan is in jail after police say he touched several girls inappropriately at school.

Police say they received allegations about 58-year-old Juan Ledezma back in May, and he was finally arrested Friday morning.

Ledezma has been charged with three counts of Indecency with a Child by Sexual Conduct.

Police say one 11-year-old and two 12-year-old girls came forward over the course of the investigation and said they had been inappropriately touched by Ledezma several times.

BISD officials say Ledezma had been a janitor at the elementary school for 12 years. He reportedly resigned after the school district and police launched an investigation in May.

Ledezma remained in the Brazos County Jail Monday night.

Investigators say there could be more victims. Anyone with information or concerns about the former janitor is encouraged to call police.
