A sting nabbed a Bennington man accused of turning to social media to lure and sexually assault a teen.

Authorities say 25-year-old Jonathan Tobin used Facebook to meet up with a 15-year-old girl. That's when they say he performed sexual acts on the minor. Police say they found text messages that back up her allegations.

Tobin was arrested in a bust Monday morning.

Authorities say he thought he was meeting up with a 14-year-old girl he met on Facebook for sex, but instead he met police behind the fake account who took him into custody.

Tobin is being held on a number of charges including lewd and lascivious conduct with a child and attempted sexual assault on a child.
