A Rockville elementary school teacher was arrested Thursday on charges of sexually abusing two of his students.

Timothy Vincent Krupica, 30, of the 6900 block of Rooks Court in Frederick, was charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a minor and several additional sex offense charges.

Montgomery County police detectives received information Wednesday from two 11-year-old girls at Meadow Hall Elementary School. The investigation revealed that on several occasions between last September 2012 and this month, Krupica inappropriately touched both victims, as well as forced or attempted to force both victims to inappropriately touch him, police said.

He was hired in August 2009 and has taught at Meadow Hall the whole time, a Montgomery County Public Schools spokesman said. Krupica taught the fifth grade.
