I don’t have many details and since I’m actually on furlough today and not supposed to be working I’ll just do a quick update here and link the story from the newspaper later whenever it gets posted (not sure who will write it yet).
But what I know is that Los Alamos Police Capt. Randy Foster has let media know of an arrest his department made “after a lengthy investigation” of Los Alamos Middle School teacher Peter Bowman, of El Rancho, who has been charged with two counts of criminal sexual penetration of a 14-year-old minor.
UPDATE: The Los Alamos Monitor has more on the story, listing Bowman as being 47-years-old and says the alleged improper contact involved a 14-year-old female student at Los Alamos Middle School.
It is to this point unclear if the victim is/was a student of Bowman.
Some poking around online shows Bowman was an 8th grade social studies teacher at Los Alamos Middle School last year and a Peter Bowman is listed on the New Mexico Activities Association website as being an assistant cross county and track coach in Los Alamos, including for the middle school.
Foster asks anyone with more information on Bowman, including anyone with “similar allegations” to contact Detective Sgt. Oliver Morris at (505) 662-8222.
