Police Seek Information on Accused Teacher

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police detectives are looking for more people who might have been involved with a Clark County School District teacher accused of attempted statutory sexual seduction and attempted lewdness with a child under 14.

Police arrested 44-year-old Michael Barclay Wednesday. He was assigned as a teacher and boys basketball coach at Lied Middle School. He has not been teaching since the investigation started. 

According to the arrest report, Barclay contacted male students through Facebook and asked them inappropriate questions.

In one case, he took one of the players on his team out to dinner and then brought him back to his house where he asked him to perform oral sex on him.

Police are asking that anyone with information about the case call Metro's Sexual Assault Section at (702) 828-3421, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.

This is the second teacher at Lied Middle School accused of inappropriate contact with students this year. Alfphonso Washington is accused of gross lewdness for inappropriately touching a 14-year-old girl.
