SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — A youth soccer coach who allegedly posed online as a modeling agent was arrested on suspicion he raped a 14-year-old girl he met through a social networking Web site, police said.

Ivan Chavez, 22, of Richmond, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of rape and sodomy and was released from Marin County Jail after posting $100,000 bond, San Rafael police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher said Friday.

Chavez is a self-employed contractor who coaches a girls soccer team at De Anza High School in Richmond and two club teams in Contra Costa County, police said.

The San Rafael girl told police in May that she was sexually assaulted by Chavez, whom she met through the MySpace.com Web site.
