A Cottonwood teacher was arrested Thursday for having sexual contact with a 17-year-old boy, officials say.

According to Cottonwood police, the relationship between the teen and 22-year-old Isabella Bowman, a teacher at Dr. Daniel Bright Elementary School, originated outside of school. The 17-year-old reportedly attends a high school outside the district.

"Even though Bowman is a teacher at DDB it doesn’t appear any students of the Cottonwood Oak Creek District were involved, or that there was any inappropriate contact with those students," Cottonwood police say.  

Though police do not believe there are any other victims, the investigation is ongoing and Bowman may face additional charges in the case.
