PECOS, N.M. (AP) - An assistant basketball coach at a New Mexico high school has been arrested on charges that he engaged in sexual acts with two teenage students.

New Mexico State Police say 29-year-old Dominick Baca was arrested Tuesday in Pecos and charged with multiple counts of criminal sexual penetration and sexual contact of a minor by school personnel.

According to charging documents, the Pecos High School assistant coach had sexual encounters with a 14-year-old girl in February 2017 and a 17-year-old girl from February to March of this year.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Baca who could comment on the allegations.

School Superintendent Fred Trujillo says Baca was placed on administrative leave more than two weeks ago.

Baca has been a coach at the school since 2015.
