This article is more than 7 years old.

Authorities say a Boston public schools teaching assistant accused of lewd behavior involving a 14-year-old autistic student who cannot speak is also suspected of a similar incident at another city school last year.

Police Commissioner Edward Davis says LeShawn Hill is accused of acting inappropriately with a student at the King School in Dorchester last year.

Authorities have charged the 33-year-old Hill with lewd and lascivious behavior in connection with alleged inappropriate behavior at the Harbor Pilot School this week.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.

Police say Hill is also a suspect in the disappearance of several computers from the Harbor School.

He has been placed on administrative leave and school officials are moving to fire him.

It was unclear if he has a lawyer.
