Criminal charges were filed Tuesday against Garrett Wayne Ammon, 30, a teacher at the Upland YMCA accused of molesting a 4-year-old boy.

Ammon is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday morning on two felony charges of committing a lewd act on a child under 14 years old, said Deputy District Attorney Karen Schmauss.

Schmauss said both acts of molestation alleged in the criminal complaint happened between Sept. 1 and Dec. 11, when Ammon had access to the child.

Ammon's computers were among the items seized by police Friday when they served a search warrant on his residence, Schmauss said.

Ammon was arrested Friday and is being jailed at West Valley Detention Center in lieu of $100,000 bail, according to online records from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.
