An American Canyon High School teacher was arrested on campus Thursday after hours in connection with felony counts of kidnapping and sexual battery in Dixon.

Stephen Michael Pult-Vega, 52, was later booked into Solano County Jail.

According to a notice from the Napa Valley Unified School District, Pult-Vega has since been placed on administrative leave.

“We take the safety and care of our students very seriously. While we cooperate with law enforcement, we will continue to provide you with as much information as we can as soon as we can,” read the district’s message to the American Canyon High School community. “Safety remains our top priority. Anyone with questions or concerns about the investigation is asked is asked to contact Dixon Police directly.”
