TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A Toledo Public School custodian has resigned after the school district learned of allegations of inappropriate behavior.

He was caught on camera trying to make contact with a 15-year-old outside of school hours at a store on W. Alexis in Toledo. The suspect had been actually communicating with a member of the online group “Dads Against Predators” posing as the juvenile.

The suspect was a custodian at Edgewater Elementary School in Point Place.

TPS administrators are cooperating with authorities on the investigation, according to a statement released by the school district.

The safety and security of all youth in our community is the number one priority for Toledo Public Schools. After learning of allegations against a custodian, swift action was taken by the district. The employee has resigned and TPS administrators are now cooperating with authorities on the investigation.

All allegations of inappropriate behavior by a TPS employee are investigated and appropriate disciplinary steps are taken should the findings dictate that outcome.
