By CBS Baltimore Staff,
BALTIMORE – A former teacher at an all-boys school in Roland Park faces allegations of maintaining inappropriate and suspicious relationships with current and former students, according to authorities.
Detectives with the Baltimore County Police Department's Crimes Against Children Unite were alerted by Child Protective Services in January that Gilman School educator Christopher Bendann had relationships with students, police said.
An investigation led them to discover at least one person who described sexual abuse by the former teacher and advisor, according to authorities.
On Friday, Baltimore County Police executed a search and seizure warrant at Bendann's residence in the 100 block of Stanmore Road in Towson, police said.
Bendann was arrested. He faces several charges, including sexual abuse of a minor and second-degree rape, according to authorities.
Detectives believe Bendann had multiple victims and they want them to come forward.
