Police have arrested a high school track coach in Buckeye after he allegedly groped a teenage athlete.
Gabriel Jesus Campos, 35, is being held on charges of sex abuse and aggravated assault. Campos is a track coach at Willow Canyon High School in Surprise.
Police say he exchanged text messages with a 16-year-old track athlete before meeting her in a park somewhere in Buckeye. Investigators say that’s where the assault took place.
Willow Canyon is on spring break this week and police say Campos met the girl at the park outside of school hours.
He was arrested on his way to track practice Monday.
Police say the girl’s parents found out about the alleged assault and notified police.
Investigators say they’re checking to see if there are other victims.
