A Long Island high school assistant principal was arrested Monday for allegedly sending inappropriate text messages to students and faculty members, police said. 

Craig Cohen, a 47-year-old assistant principal at Wyandanch Memorial High School, is accused of sending messages that were sexual in nature during February and March, according to Suffolk County Police.

He was charged with three counts of second-degree aggravated harassment and one charge of endangering the welfare of a child.

Cohen is being held overnight at the First Precinct and is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Central Court in Central Islip Tuesday, police said. 

Attorney information was not immediately available.

Cohen has worked at the high school for about eight years, authorities said.
