Green Bay, WI (WTAQ) - A 27 year old employee of Green Bay's Pilgrim Lutheran Church and School is under arrest, facing a list of charges ranging from 2nd degree sexual assault of a child, to using a computer to facilitate a sex crime. 

Brown County Sheriff's deputies arrested Wayne Makela on Tuesday. 

Deputies were initially notified of a possible assault involving a 13 year old boy at the school by the child's parents.   That came when they found suspicious text messages on his cell phone.  

Investigators believe the relationship between Makela and the victim had been going on for several months.

The school has been co-operating in the investigation.  Authorities are keeping the investigation open in case more victims come forward.
