MONTEREY PARK ( — A fifth grade teacher who works for the Alhambra Unified School District was arrested for sexually abusing a former student.

Jeffrey Yoshitake, 42, was taken into custody Friday and charged with one felony count of lewd acts with a minor. He’s being held on $100,000 bail.

Yoshitake allegedly had an inappropriate relationship with the alleged female victim, who was a former math student, for approximately seven years, starting from the time she was 15.

Investigators believe the incident is isolated.

Anyone with additional information, however, has been asked to contact Lt. Bill Cuevas of the Monterey Park Police Department’s Investigations Bureau at (626) 307-1236.
