NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Police have arrested a New York City schoolteacher on a rape charge, the NYPD confirmed.

Authorities charged Anthony Criscuolo, 40, with first-degree rape, police said.

Criscuolo, a fifth-grade special education teacher at P.S. 386 in the Bronx, is accused of raping a 10-year-old student, according to Metro.us.

The girl's mother found sexual emails between her daughter and Criscuolo, so she contacted police, Metro.us reported.

"He has been reassigned away from the school and any students," said Connie Pankratz, a Department of Education spokesperson. "We plan to seek his termination."

Criscuolo makes $72,990 a year, according to the DOE. He started his career in 2002 as a substitute special education teacher at P.S. 178 in the Bronx. In 2003, he was appointed to a full-time position. He has also worked at P.S. 498 in the Bronx.
