Mobile application security vulnerability report

Police in Austin, Texas, want to question a Yorkshire man over allegations that he had sex with a teenage girl he met in an internet chatroom.

The 36-year-old man from Leyburn has been arested by police in Yorkshire in connection with the sexual assault. He has been released on bail but could face extradition proceedings, according to a report by the BBC.

Police in the US allege that the man flew out to Austin in July to meet the girl, whom he met first online more than two years ago. He is alleged to have "groomed" the 15-year-old girl online before assualting her "several times" when he visited the US.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police confirmed that a man had been arrested and bailed on alleged grooming offences. ®
