Police charged a Mississippi elementary school teacher with child molestation last week, after he allegedly inappropriately touched a child he was babysitting, state media reported.

Union police arrested Justin Michael Little, 28, and charged him with one count of child molestation.

Little was a teacher in the Forest Municipal School District in Scott County. The alleged molestation did not involve a child in the school district, but was reportedly with the child of a friend in the nearby town of Union.

The Clarion Ledger newspaper reported that Little apparently left a bite mark on the toddler’s neck.

Little reportedly was released on $30,000 bond. He is scheduled to face a grand jury later this year.
