New York: A 22-year-old Indian-origin man in the US has been arrested and charged with sexual enticement of a minor girl through social media, authorities have said.

Sachin Aji Bhaskar, a resident of New York's Buffalo city, faces a minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, maximum of life in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant US Attorney Wei Xiang said on Tuesday that Bhaskar, using a social media application in August, contacted the girl who claimed to be 15 but was 11-year-old.

He picked her up by car and returned her home approximately three hours later after having sex with her.

He made an initial appearance before US Magistrate Judge Kenneth Schroder and is being held pending a detention hearing.
