Police say Mathew Davis met his victim while tutoring her at Tutor Whiz in Corona.
The investigation began after the parents of the victim discovered online conversations between the two and called police. Officers say a search warrant at Davis' home lead to evidence that Davis had engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with the victim.
Davis was arrested Sunday and charged with several counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor. He was booked into the Corona Police Department and later released on a $25,000 bond.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact detective Gail Gottfried at (951) 279-3623.
