WASHINGTON — A substitute teacher for Glascow Middle School in Lincolnia is accused of having inappropriate conduct with three students, Fairfax County Police said.

According to authorities, 60-year-old Albert Keys faces two felony charges of indecent liberties by a custodian and a single misdemeanor charge of simple assault. Keys was arrested by detectives on Friday, after an investigation began earlier last week following reports that he had inappropriate conduct with multiple students in the last two months.

Keys is currently being held on a $5,000 bond at an adult detention center in Fairfax. Victim specialists have been assigned to help assist students and ensure they are provided with any resources they need.

Detectives with the Major Crimes Bureau believe there could be more victims and are asking anyone who has more information on Keys or anyone who may have had contact with him to call them at 703-246-7800, option 3. 

Anonymous tipsters are also eligible for cash rewards of $100 to $1,000 if their information leads to an arrest, and can submit their tips to the Fairfax Crime Solvers Unit.
