A former elementary school teacher was arrested after allegedly tying up a group of kids in a classroom and assaulting them.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Rosenthal reports:

A 61-year-old elementary school teacher is accused of tying up 23 children, gagging them, covering their faces with giant cockroaches, and feeding them spoonfuls of his bodily fluids.

It may sound unbelievable, but it was apparently caught on camera.

The LA County Sheriff's Department was tipped off after a photo processor turned over photographs of seven to ten-year-olds blindfolded inside a classroom.

During the investigation, police uncovered a plastic spoon and container from the trashcan that matched Mark Berndt's bodily fluids.
