The Shreveport Police Sex Crimes detectives were called to Fair Park High School just after 9 a.m. after a female student said she was inappropriately touched by a teacher's aide while at school.

Reports say 60-year-old Bobby Jelks groped a 17-year-old student at various times during the previous school day. Police believe the inappropriate behavior may have happened over a period of time in the past several weeks.

Jelks was detained on campus at the school and later arrested for his alleged involvement in the crime.

Following his arrest, Jelks was taken to the Shreveport City Jail where he was booked on a single charge of sexual battery.

Jelks has been placed on administrative leave without pay by the Caddo Public Schools' personnel department pending an investigation.

The investigation is ongoing.
