WASHINGTON (AP) - Officials say a D.C. teacher is accused of sexually abusing a juvenile who attends the school.

Members of the Youth Investigations Division arrested 31-year-old Giovanni Pena on Tuesday, one day after Metropolitan Police Department investigators received information about the accusation.

The Oyster-Adams Bilingual School’s website lists Pena as a fourth-grade English teacher who joined the school in 2008.

Officials say Pena was removed from the classroom when D.C. Public Schools was informed of the report. It’s unknown if he has a lawyer.
