    McKinney police say they were called to a home in the 1300 block of Gough Street on Wednesday. While authorities were responding to a burglary in progress, they arrived to Kessler being detained by the homeowner.

    RISD music teacher arrested in sexual assault of juvenile in McKinney

    Roger Kessler, 43, said he hadn’t revealed his medical condition to the boy, whom he met in August through a dating app, according to a probable cause affidavit. The teacher told police he had met the boy four times for sexual encounters and had used protection all but one time.

    ...

    McKinney police took Kessler into custody after responding to a suspected burglary. The homeowner, a 31-year-old woman, was holding Kessler down when officers arrived. The homeowner told police through a translator that she was coming home when she saw Kessler leaving the backyard.

    When police questioned Kessler, he told them he was meeting “a guy” for sex. Court records show that Kessler and the boy met through a dating app for gay and bisexual men called Grindr that they used to exchange explicit messages. The teacher showed his phone to police, who noticed an incoming message that read, “my dad isn’t home.” An outgoing message read, “is your mom home right now.” Kessler told police that he thought the boy was possibly a college student but later admitted he knew the boy was 15.
