SAN DIEGO – A Spanish teacher at Crawford High School was arrested Thursday night on suspicion of engaging in an unlawful sexual act with a student.

Toni Nicole Sutton, 37, was escorted off the El Cerrito campus by police earlier Thursday after a parent reported inappropriate communication between her son and the family friend.

Prior to the arrest, the school district said the teacher was placed on immediate indefinite leave, but the principal had not commented.
