LEBANON, N.H. (WCAX) An Upper Valley man faces sex charges after getting caught in an online police sting.

Lebanon Police say Nathan Malmquist, 39, of Lebanon engaged in a conversation via social media with an officer in the cyber crimes unit posing as a juvenile.

The investigation allegedly led to Malmquist arriving at a local park on Monday to meet a person he thought was a juvenile for sexual acts. Instead, he was taken into custody and charged with attempted felonious sexual assault among other charges.

He was being held on $20,000 cash bail.
