Police in Tucson arrested a former assistant volleyball coach for what they say was a sexual relationship with an underage girl.

Officers started investigating Saturday, January 20, into a potential relationship between 22-year-old Robert Forman II and a girl he met at Ironwood Ridge High School, according to a release from the department.

The release stated Forman met the girl when he was an assistant volleyball coach at the school.
