GREENSBORO — Police arrested a Greensboro teacher Friday in connection with an alleged sex assault on a student, according to police spokeswoman Susan Danielsen.

Randall Lee Clawson, 53, a teacher at Lindley Elementary School, was being held in the Guilford County jail on $500,000 bond.

Detectives described the incident as “inappropriate touching,” Danielsen said.

According to warrants, sometime after the Christmas break, Clawson had sexual contact with a student against the student’s will. Clawson restrained and confined the student, who was less than 13 years old, for the purpose of having the contact with the student, according to warrants.

Clawson was charged with taking indecent liberties with a student; second-degree sex offense; first-degree sex offense against a child; second-degree kidnapping, and taking indecent liberties with a child.

Online records show that Clawson teaches ESOL (English speakers of other languages) at the school at 2700 Camden Road.

Clawson has been placed on leave pending the outcome of the investigation, according to an official with the Guilford County Schools.
