NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) - A Newport News hotel security guard has turned himself in after being accused of engaging in sexual acts with a 14-year-old girl at the hotel.

The Daily Press (https://bit.ly/1J3tBlI ) reports 49-year-old Rodney Jerome Vaughan turned himself in Monday night. Newport News police spokesman Lou Thurston says Vaughan faces three counts each of carnal knowledge of a child being between 13 and 14 years old, and taking indecent liberties with a child under the age of 15.

Thurston says police were first notified about the allegations on Dec. 19. The 14-year-old says the two were involved in a consensual relationship and had engaged in sexual acts multiple times between September and December.

Vaughan is being held at the Newport News City Jail. It isn’t clear if he has an attorney.
