A Providence man has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a 14-year old girl from Foster who he met online.

Police say 60-year old David Harris met the teenager on a teen chat room online. The girl told police that she told Harris she was only 14 but Harris brought her to his home and engaged in sexual intercourse with her anyways.

Harris is the director of the Blackstone Chess Club and Academy and is responsible for organizing chess tournaments at local school.

Police were alerted to the situation when an anonymous source alerted police about the teens online profile on OKCupid. The profile stated that the teen had sexual relations with a man in his fifties.
