SPOKANE, Wash. - UPDATE: On January 16th, 2014, at 2:45 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy, and East Valley School District Resource Deputy, Scott Streltzoff responded to Trent Elementary on a possible assault call.

Deputy Streltzoff contacted the principal who said at least three students had come forward with allegations that a 6th grade substitute teacher had verbally and physically assaulted them.

There were also allegations the substitute smelled of alcohol. Once East Valley School District officials were advised of this incident, the substitute was terminated from the district.

The students and substitute left the building before Deputy Streltzoff arrived. After obtaining the initial investigative information, Spokane County Major Crimes Detectives responded to continue investigating the incident. Through their investigation, detectives determined probable cause existed to arrest 46-year-old Matthew C. Deryan for 3-counts of 4th Degree Assault and 3-counts of Unlawful Imprisonment. Deryan was taken into custody Thursday evening at his residence. Additional charges are expected as the investigation continues.
