An Iowa City man faces charges for 3rd degree sexual assault; police say Nathan Lade, 21, is accused of assaulting a 12-year-old girl he met on social media on January 22.
Criminal complaints say that day he picked the girl up at her house, took her to his house and assaulted her.
The victim had to receive medical treatment afterward; she also claims that afterward, Lade sent her messages related to what happened that day.

Lade was booked in the Johnson County Jail early on Thursday morning, and is charged with 3rd degree sexual abuse, a class C Felony.
