    Connecticut State Police

    A 28-year-old sailor based out of Groton is accused of having sexual relations with a teenage boy he met through the Grindr app and has been arrested.

    State police have charged 28-year-old Chazzman Chung with risk of injury to a child and enticing a minor by computer.

    The middle school student was home sick in December and Chung picked the teen up at his house, brought him to the sub-base and had sexual relations with the teen in the Navy barracks.

    According to the arrest warrant, the two met on the app Grindr. The victim told police he listed his age at 18, but that he told the suspect he was actually 14. The arrest warrant says the boy was 13 years old.

    During an interview with police, Chung admitted to having sex with the victim in his barracks room on the submarine base, despite knowing the victim was underage, the warrant states.

    Bond was set at $100,000.
