PHOENIX - A Phoenix teacher was arrested Thursday after police say he engaged in sexual misconduct with two of his former students while on school property.

Carlos Pineda Borja, 41, was booked into Maricopa County Jail charged with two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, one count of molestation of a child and one count of sexual abuse, said Sgt. Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix Police Department.

Thompson said the alleged misconduct with the two  female students occurred in the 2012/2013 school year.

According to court documents, the two female students were both 14-years-old at the time of the occurrence.

 It happened during school hours at Morris K. Udall School at 37th Avenue and Roosevelt Street, according to Thompson.

Detectives of the Family Investigations Bureau of the Phoenix Police Department arrested Borja when it learned of the misconduct, Thompson said.

Borja was still a teacher at the school at the time of his arrest.

Authorities are encouraging anyone who may have information concerning these crimes to call 602-262-6151 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
