MILPITAS (CBS/AP) — Police in Milpitas say a fitness trainer is in jail after he was accused earlier this month of raping a 16-year-old female client.

Milpitas police say 42-year-old William Tracy McCowan was arrested July 9 near his Milpitas home after a sexual assault was reported to police three days earlier.

The San Jose Mercury News reported Sunday that — according to police — the self-employed McCowan was the girl’s fitness trainer when the assault allegedly occurred.

Authorities say McCowan remains in the Santa Clara County jail on suspicion of rape, penetration with a foreign object and oral copulation, according to police.

He is being held on $4.4 million bail.
