According to the NYPD, a 69-year-old teacher’s assistant was arrested on Thursday after he was caught “fondling” a 13-year-old girl with Down syndrome at a park in Williamsburg.

From the New York Daily News:

A witness called the cops on Jesus Lorenzo, a teacher’s assistant at IS 318, after spotting him groping the teen in the De Hostos playground — directly adjacent to the junior high school — on Walton St. and Harrison Ave. in Williamsburg around 11 a.m. Thursday, authorities said.

Police are still unsure whether the victim was one of Lorenzo’s students or if he even knew the girl at all. And though still awaiting formal arraignment, Lorenzo is being charged with forcible touching, endangering the welfare of a child, and sexual conduct with an individual less than 17.
