    A New Hampshire man is facing a slew of charges after police say he used a dating app to exchange sexually explicit images with a teenager and sexually assault the teen.

    Patrick O’Brien, 51, of Exeter, was arrested Monday by Manchester police on an active warrant following an extensive investigation, according to a Manchester police statement.

    O'Brien is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old in Manchester, child pornography and sex trafficking.

    The investigation began Sept. 29 when someone known to the 13-year-old contacted police, police said. Through interviews and examining cell phones, authorities said they found that O'Brien got in touch with the teen through a dating app, then exchanged sexually explicit images with them.
