STILLWATER, Minn. (AP) -- A Minnesota man who taught in a western Wisconsin high school is accused of sexually assaulting students.

Washington County Attorney Pete Orput said Thursday his office has charged 36-year-old Matthew Robert Koenen of Stillwater with two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Koenen was a teacher at a high school in Grantsburg, Wis., in 2012. The prosecutor says the alleged victims were students at the high school.

According to the complaint, Koenen developed a relationship with several female students in person, online and by text. That allegedly led to sexual conduct that happened in Stillwater.

The Star Tribune reports Stillwater police investigated.

Koenen is not in custody.
