TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A school bus driver in Tampa has been charged with sexual battery of a child.

The Tampa Police Department reports 29-year-old Dacquiri Jermaine Crawford was arrested Friday.

Crawford is a bus driver with the Hillsborough County School District.

Investigators say Crawford grabbed a 12-year-old boy as he was walking home behind Blake High School in Tampa Thursday evening. He allegedly forced the boy down near the Hillsborough River and assaulted him.

The victim ran home and his mother called 911.

Police arrested the suspect when he returned to the location of the offense around the same time on Friday.

Crawford has been charged with the sexual battery and trespassing on school property.
