ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

A 30-year employee at a St. Paul school has been arrested on suspicion of interfering with privacy after resigning last month after being accused of inappropriate conduct involving a student.

Walter Happel worked as a janitor at Linwood Monroe's upper campus, which is where students in grades 4 through 8 get their education.

In late February, the district placed him on paid administrative leave after the allegations that he had peeked on students surfaced. He resigned two days later.

Officials said last week the St. Paul School district has been working with the families of students who were involved. Last Thursday, a letter was posted to the school's website regarding the employee's departure.
