LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County sheriff's officials say they have arrested a man suspected of raping a mentally disabled woman aboard a Los Angeles transit bus.

Sgt. Dan Scott says a man has been booked for investigation of rape but didn't immediately release the suspect's name or age.

Authorities say the suspect boarded the bus with the woman in suburban Culver City, followed her to the back of the bus and forced himself on her late Wednesday afternoon.

A lone witness tried to alert the bus driver that the rape was happening, but it continued for about 10 minutes until the suspect stopped and exited the bus.

Scott says the 18-year-old woman has the mental capacity of a 10-year-old. He says that after the attack, she reported it to the driver.
