HANSON, Mass. (AP) — A Rhode Island man was arrested and charged with child rape over the weekend after police received a tip about a video posted on social media.

Jared Soltys, of Providence, was held on $5,000 bail at his arraignment Monday on charges of statutory child rape and procuring liquor for someone under 21. Not guilty pleas were entered on his behalf.

Hanson police say they received a tip about the video at about 1 a.m. Saturday. It showed the suspect with a minor. Officers responded to the area and took Soltys into custody.

His attorney did not comment on the specific allegations.
