A Goodyear man was arrested Tuesday during a traffic stop in Tolleson on suspicion of sexual assault, Tempe police said.
Michael White, 49, was apprehended in connection with an ongoing sexual assault investigation conducted by the Tempe Police Department.
White was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail on two counts of sexual assault and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.
Tempe police were notified of the assault Sunday night by the victim - a 23-year-old man, according to Lt. Scott Smith.
Tempe police sex crimes investigators followed up on the initial report and developed additional information and evidence related to the case, authorities said.
One item uncovered during the investigation was an email to the victim in which White apologized for one of the incidents, according to investigators.
Investigators said they believe White sexually assaulted the victim multiple times in the past year.
The victim told investigators that White had also sexually assaulted him when he was a teenager. He did not report the assaults at the time.
White was a school social worker at Tolleson High School for more than 15 years and is currently employed by the city of Tolleson in the Community Services Department, where he works with the youth and elderly, Smith said.
White was being held without bond.
Police said there might be additional victims and anyone with information related to the case is asked to contact the Tempe Police Department at 480-350-8311.
