PHOENIX -- Phoenix police arrested a 20-year-old teacher's aide they say engaged in sexual acts with two teenage students.

On Thursday, the principal and teachers at Western Valley Middle School near 63rd Avenue and Durango Street learned that Gabriela Antoinette Compton had sent a picture of her breasts to some of the male students, according to Sgt. Tommy Thompson.

School officials contacted the Phoenix Police Department.

Thompson said police detectives discovered that Compton had previously engaged in sexual acts with two male students, ages 13 and 14, in February.

Compton was taken into custody at her home near 64th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road. She reportedly admitted her involvement in the incidents.

Compton was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on four counts of sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of sexual abuse and one count of furnishing obscene material to a minor.

She is being held without bond.
