Prosecutors say police responded on June 6 to Dorchester's Conservatory Lab Charter School after the girl reported the incident.

Jaramillo is accused of approaching the girl while she walked to the bus stop, handing her a cord and asking her to help him tie a knot.

"He then bent down and told the girl he was going to pull up her sock," the district attorney's office said in a press release. "Jaramillo then used his cellphone to take a photo up the victim's skirt and rubbed his hand against her leg."

Police identified Jaramillo after sharing photos of the suspect last week, prosecutors said. An arrest warrant was issued Saturday.

"This young girl deserves great credit for relaying to school officials what happened to her that morning," Suffolk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden said in a statement. "That information, along with valuable assistance from a community member, helped police make an identification and arrest. This is yet another example of the community working with law enforcement to increase safety for all."
