AVONDALE, Ariz. -- An Avondale teacher has been accused of filming his sexual assault of two underage students.

Police booked 37-year-old Werner Alcid Girard on Wednesday on a dozen counts related to sexual conduct with a minor, sexual assault, voyeurism and unlawful viewing of a tape or recording of a person.

Avondale police received a report May 26 that Girard possessed cellphone videos depicting a 15-year-old girl and 16-year-old girl in various states of undress.

Police found three videos and all were made between March 22 and April 15. One showed Girard fondling the 15-year-old.

The victims, who both were in his class, say they were at Girard's home and he sexually assaulted them in his bedroom.

It is not known if Girard had an attorney.
