An Oakdale man was arrested by federal authorities in West Virginia on a charge of traveling across state lines to have sex with a minor.

Mustafa Momoun Bazbaz, 28, is in custody and awaiting a detention hearing on charges stemming from a sexual encounter that federal authorities said involved a 15-year-old girl from Jefferson County, Ohio.

BazBaz is accused of meeting the girl in December on a website known as MeetMe.com, where he pretended to be 17. He is accused of sending sexually explicit images of himself to her before meeting her outside her home and taking her to a hotel room in Hancock County, W.Va., prosecutors said Wednesday.

BazBaz previously lived in Culver City, Calif., and moved to Oakdale in August, federal court documents state.
