A math and science teacher at Our Lady of Holy Rosary School was charged Thursday with sexually molesting two female students.

Ricardo Flores, 32, was charged with nine counts of sexual molestation of a child under 14 and one count of attempted sexual molestation.

Flores allegedly molested an 11-year-old girl during the 2007-08 school year. Los Angeles police began investigating him after the girl told a counselor at a summer day camp, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office. Investigators then learned of a second victim, who was 12 at the time he allegedly molested her last year.

Flores was arrested Tuesday and placed on leave by the school. He is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
