COLORADO SPRINGS - A school cafeteria worker in El Paso County was arrested on child sex assault charges.

Tonya Harris, 34, is accused of illegal sexual contact with a 17-year-old boy while at a party in November 2012.

The investigation began in February 2013 but was inactive due to a lack of leads. Harris' arrest comes after the El Paso Sherriff's Office received new information through Safe2Tell, an anonymous hotline for teens.

Harris is employed as a food service worker for Falcon School District 49. It's not known if she is still with the school district.

She was being held on $3,000 bond for sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
