SANTA CLARA (BCN) – A Mission College instructor was arrested last week on suspicion of sexual assault, Santa Clara police said Tuesday.
Raymond Ruiz, a 68-year-old San Jose resident, was arrested last Thursday after police received information on May 28 that Ruiz allegedly sexually assaulted a 25-year-old woman on multiple occasions in the city of Santa Clara.
The woman was a student in Ruiz’s class at Mission College’s Program for Students with Developmental Disabilities.
At the time of the alleged assaults, Ruiz was a contract employee and not a permanent member of the staff. He is no longer a contract employee with the college, police said.
