Windsor, Ont. –
Windsor police have arrested a 34-year-old man who was a substitute teacher with the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board (WECDSB) for allegedly sexually assaulting students.
The Windsor Police Service Major Crime Unit launched an investigation last month into allegations of multiple students being sexually assaulted by a supply teacher.
It was reported that the teacher was touching children inappropriately. Police say five victims have since come forward, all under the age of 18.

Police have arrested Aram Raihana, of Windsor, who is facing five counts of sexual assault and five counts of sexual interference.
