An assistant principal at Wyandanch High School was arrested Monday and charged with sending "inappropriate texts," some of a sexual nature, police said, to faculty and students.

Craig Cohen, 47, was arrested at his Northport home and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and three counts of second-degree aggravated harassment. Cohen, employed by the Wyandanch district for about eight years, sent the messages between last month and this one, Suffolk police said.
