HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A 26-year-old Houston ISD teacher was arrested Thursday and charged with indecent exposure.

Police say Thomas Wright, a teacher at Hogg Middle School, exposed himself to a female student from another school while she was walking to campus.

According to an arrest affidavit, Wright exposed his genitals and masturbated in front of the female on April 6. During an investigation, another incident involving a different student was uncovered.

Wright is no longer a teacher at Hogg Middle School.

"HISD takes situations such as this very seriously, as the safety of students is always the district's top priority," the district said.
