Tyler police are investigating a reported sexual assault of a minor by a man she met on the Internet.
Don Martin, the department’s public information officer, said the incident was reported Sunday and purportedly happened at a local motel.
“The victim told us she had met the much older man on the Internet, and the two met at a local motel where they did have sexual relations,” he said.
Martin said the girl’s age makes the “consensual” act a crime, but said the case remains under investigation.
No arrests have been made in the case.
