A woman is claiming she was sexually assaulted during a home photo shoot and the photographer had been placed under arrest, according to the Turlock Police Department.

Toney McRae, 50, was taken into custody around 12:30 a.m. Sunday at a residence in the 1300 block of Paseo Belleza. He was arrested on suspicion of penetration with a foreign object, attempted rape, and false imprisonment, said Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Steve Rodrigues.

The woman told investigators they were conducting the photo shoot when McRae allegedly approached her, pulled down her shorts, and sexually assaulted her.

The woman and the suspect knew of each other, but were not acquainted before the photo shoot.

McRae is being held at the Stanislaus County Jail in lieu of a $200,000 bail.
