Police arrested /*Christopher James Hooker*/, 41, at his Modesto home.

Detectives first began to investigate Hooker after the mother of an Enochs High School student reported what she thought was an inappropriate relationship between her 18-year-old daughter and Hooker.

During that investigation, detectives discovered a separate victim involved in a relationship with Hooker in 1998 when she was a high school student.

Hooker is accused of sexually assaulting the then 17-year-old victim.
