A Sacramento high school teacher has been arrested on suspicion of sexual-related charges with a minor.
Ramon Rosales, 49, a John F. Kennedy High School special education teacher, was arrested on two misdemeanor charges of unlawful touching of a juvenile.
Yolo County sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Matthew Davis said that about 6 p.m. July 17 a state Department of Fish and Wildlife warden came upon a parked vehicle on a side of Old River Road between Woodland and West Sacramento.
He requested the assistance of deputies after allegedly interrupting the acts of a sexual nature involving the teacher and the teen inside the vehicle, Davis said. Rosales was arrested by deputies.

He was booked into Yolo County jail and later released. Davis said that the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
Rosales was placed on administrative leave once the district heard of his arrest, according to Sacramento City Unified School District officials. Kennedy parents were informed by telephone.
“SCUSD has placed an employee of John F. Kennedy High School on administrative leave while Yolo County sheriff’s detectives investigate allegations of an inappropriate relationship with a student,” the district said in a statement. “The district is working closely with law enforcement and will continue to take every possible measure within our authority to ensure the safety and well-being of our students.”
