NEWFIELDS, N.H. (AP) - A former New Hampshire Boy Scout leader accused of sexually assaulting a scout 20 years ago has been working more recently as a bus driver for special needs students.

Sixty-nine-year-old Eugene Perrault, of Newfields, was arrested Monday.

Police said a man approached them recently saying he was assaulted by Perreault about 20 years ago. Police said the man was younger than 13 at the time.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dGHG9O ) Perrault was recently driving for Safeway Transportation, which transports special needs children to school districts in southern New Hampshire and northeastern Massachusetts. Safeway says Perreault has been placed on leave.

Perreault was a scoutmaster in Newfields and Epping from the mid-1990s through 2006.

He was released after posting bail. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer. He declined to comment on the charge.
