PAGE COUNTY -- Christopher Robert Ritchie Jr, a Page County High School teacher, was arrested Monday on one felony count of taking indecent liberties with a child.
In a press release from Page County Investigator Mike Wagoner, the investigation into the alleged offense started in Page County but was later found to have taken place in Harrisonburg. Wagoner said the offense was not affiliated with any school function.
At this time, there is no evidence of any other victims, but the investigation will continue until all known leads are exhausted.
The Page County Sheriff's Office is working with the Rockingham County Commonwealth's Attorney's Office and the Harrisonburg police.
