BELGRADE, Maine (AP) - Police say a Maine man supplied alcohol to an 11-year-old girl before sexually assaulting her in Belgrade.

Maine state police have charged 21-yar-old Travis Gerrier with gross sexual assault and supplying alcohol to a minor.

Authorities say they responded last week to a report of a missing 11-year-old girl. After a brief search, police say they found Gerrier and the girl a short distance from her home in an outbuilding on the property.

Police arrested Gerrier Friday, after a weeklong investigation. He is being held at the Kennebec County Jail on a $2,500 bond. It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
