BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Police in Bangor say have charged a man from Oxford, England with gross sexual assault after they received a complaint from the father of a 13-year-old girl from Levant.

Investigators say Nicholas Cheese, 26, met the girl online about a year ago. Cheese flew to Bangor last week and rented a hotel room.

Detectives Brent Beaulieu of the Bangor Police Department and Detective Andrew Whitehouse of the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office interviewed Cheese in his hotel room. He was arrested and charged with gross sexual assault and sexual exploitation of a minor.

Cheese is being held on $25,000 bail and his passport has been revoked.
