The Vallejo Police Department has arrested a special education teacher on suspicion of raping a developmentally disabled student aide.

Jerry Johnson, 57, of Elk Grove, is accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old at Loma Vista Elementary School on campus and during school hours. The assault occurred during the latter part of February, said a department spokesman. Police do not know if the incident was isolated or if Johnson committed other assaults.

Johnson was arrested in Elk Grove yesterday around 5:30 p.m. with the assistance of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office.

He teaches special education students in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten. He has taught at Loma Vista for the past two years. The victim was an aide who assisted with the teaching of other developmentally disabled students.

The victim had the mental capacity of a 7 year old, according to the department.
