A Baltimore County high school teacher arrested on charges that he sexually abused a minor was ordered to home detention after a hearing Monday, according to court records.

Carlos Arroyo, 38, a teacher at Randallstown High School, has been charged with two felonies and two misdemeanors that include sexual abuse of a minor and sexual offense in the third degree, according to the Baltimore County Police Department.

Police confirmed that the minor was a student at Randallstown High and is a girl, according to court records.

Randallstown High Principal Michael Jones said the school is cooperating with law enforcement, according to a letter to the high school community.

“These charges are deeply troubling. We hold our employees to a high standard of character and this behavior is completely unacceptable,” Jones wrote. “Ensuring a safe learning environment for our students is our top priority.”

Arroyo has been employed by Baltimore County public schools since 2022. He served as a social studies teacher and boys’ varsity soccer coach at Randallstown High but has been placed on administrative leave and will have no further access to the school or soccer team, the letter said.

Counselors will be made available to students this week, Jones added.

Police said they were notified in April. The department’s Crimes Against Children Unit launched an investigation, conducted interviews and gathered evidence, which led to Arroyo’s arrest Friday.

An attorney representing Arroyo declined to comment Monday.
