Baltimore County Police last week arrested Foye Minton, 33, at the Day School at Baltimore Hebrew, where he currently works.

Minton is accused of having a sexual relationship with a female student for four years at the Shoshana S. Cardin School, where Minton previously worked as dean of students and athletic director.

The student, who said the abuse started in 2009, is now 20.She approached police in December, who conducted an investigation, which culminated in Minton’s arrest last week, the Baltimore Sun reported. The student told police that Minton attempted to contact her on several occasions after she ended the relationship, according to the Baltimore Jewish Times.

Baltimore Hebrew sent a letter to parents last week informing them of the arrest and said that the school is “not aware of any incidents or complaints in connection to this teacher while teaching at the Day School,” the Baltimore Jewish Times reported.
