NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ An assistant principal at a New Haven high school has been charged with making harassing phone calls to six different women.

Authorities say 38-year-old Kevin Muhammad made more than 1,000 calls to one woman alone, and the sometimes sexually graphic early morning calls date to November 2008.

Muhammad has been on administrative leave from the Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School since Nov. 29 when school officials became aware of the police investigation.

Muhammad turned himself in to police Wednesday and was charged with second-degree harassment. He is free on $1,500 bond.

Police say some of the alleged victims were co-workers, one was the parent of student, and one he met through the mosque he attends in Bridgeport.

Muhammad denied making the calls to police.
