Gilbert Rimple, who is currently employed as a second-grade teacher at P.S. 92 in Brooklyn, was arrested in New Jersey on Sunday.

A Sayreville Police Department investigation into Rimple began after police were notified that the teacher allegedly sexually assaulted a minor who was less than 13 years old at the time of the crime.

Rimple faces several charges, including one count of first-degree aggravated sexual assault, one count of sexual assault in the second degree and one count of endangering the welfare of a child in the second degree.

He is being held at the Middlesex County Jail and is awaiting a detention hearing scheduled for Tuesday.
