STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. — Deputies have arrested a man who allegedly inappropriately touched a girl on a school bus in Stafford County

According to the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO), 25-year-old Tyler Trotter was working as an assistant basketball coach for Brooke Point High School when the incident occurred. 

Investigators say earlier this month, the girl was riding on a school bus to an away game when Trotter sat down next to her.

The victim told deputies the coach then had a "sexually explicit" conversation with her before touching her inappropriately.

Detectives arrested Trotter on Tuesday. He has been charged with indecent liberties with a child by a custodian. 

Deputies say Trotter is no longer coaching with Stafford County Schools. 

The investigation is active and ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Hinson at 540-658-4400.
