Several girls have come forward with allegations of sexual assault by a teacher's assistant Thursday.

The allegations are now being investigated by the LAPD.

Detectives interviewed students at a North Hollywood elementary school, Oxnard Street Elementary School.

School officials at the elementary school contacted parents Wednesday to ask them to come to talk to the police. 

Multiple students brought information on the alleged assaults to the attention of the principal. 

The employee has been re-assigned, pending the results of the investigation.

The school principal has sent a letter to parents telling them of the alleged misconduct and that the LAPD is now conducting an investigation.

No arrests have been made yet in the case.
