A former teacher is accused of sexually assaulting several 10-year-old girls, the teacher was previously accused of sexually assaulting a 4th-grade student in 2012 while he gave her private tutoring lessons. Prosecutors say it happened in a church basement.

Kevin Buelow, 45, who taught fourth grade, is accused of sexually assaulting three of his students at Holy Apostles in New Berlin. He is charged with two counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child and one count of fourth-degree sexual assault.

"He began to rub her upper back, and then went to go down to her buttocks and started caressing her buttocks as she was standing next to him reviewing an assignment," New Berlin police Detective Nikki Saftig said.

Buelow twice posted cash bail for the Milwaukee County charges, a total of $12,500, according to online court records. A warrant has been issued for his arrest in connection with the new charges. He was not in either Milwaukee or Waukesha county jails as of Nov. 15.

Parents of three children went to New Berlin police with the new allegations after hearing about Buelow’s arrests in August and talking with their children, according to a criminal complaint.

The children told investigators that Buelow touched them inappropriately while they were students in his fourth-grade class.

Buelow was placed on administrative leave after he was charged in Milwaukee County. Since then, his employment with Holy Apostles has been terminated, according to a letter the school sent to parents.
