A former teacher's aide at the Boys & Girls Village in Milford has been arrested for sexually assaulting two girls under the age of 16 at the school for children with special needs.
Ronnie Maebry, 34, of New Haven, was arrested Wednesday and charged with sexual assault in the second degree, sexual assault in the fourth degree, and two counts of risk of injury, said Milford Police Officer Mike DeVito.
The abuse, which allegedly includes sending sexually suggestive text messages, exposing his genitals to them and inappropriately touching at least one of them, was first reported in October, police said.
Since that time police have been investigating the crimes as well as working to interview the victims and obtain arrest warrants, DeVito said.
"He was immediately removed from the school at the time of the charges and hasn't had any contact with the students since leaving the school," he said.
Maebry is being held on $30,000 bond.
