(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A substitute teacher in the Clark County schools is facing multiple charges in connection with the sexual assault of a teenager.

CCSD police identify her as 22 year old Tanikka Queen, accused of sexually assaulting a 15 year old boy, an eighth grader at Hyde Park Middle School, where Queen has taught for the past year.

Queen is facing a half dozen counts, including kidnapping and sex assault. CCSD Police tell KXNT the parent of another student alerted authorities to the possible relationship.

Police say Queen and the student exchanged as many as a hundred phone calls, and more than 2,000 text messages over a four-day period in mid-February.
