A Missouri man was arrested Monday for violating the sex offender registry by being at a Johnson City elementary school, police said in a news release.

When officers responded to South Side Elementary School, Robert M. Atwell Jr., 40, 11153 Almond Ave., Marceline, Missouri, was discovered there with a woman to register her child for school.

Police said Atwell was in violation of the Tennessee sex offender registry when he entered the school property without a reason or relationship involving custody or responsibility for the child.
