A Westminster High School teacher resigned on Thursday after being accused of sexually assaulting a student.

Police say a school employee noticed odd behavior between 30-year-old Benjamin Forbes and a female student and reported it to administrators.

After looking into the allegations, school officials contacted Westminster Police.

Forbes was arrested on two counts of sexual assault on a child, and taken to the Adams County Detention Facility.

Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact Detective Grigg at 303-658-4360.
