HUDSON -- A 19-year old Indiana man was arrested and charged with sexual battery after a 13-year-old girl told Pasco sheriff's deputies he forced her down on a bed and sexually assaulted her.

The girl told deputies that Poore forced her onto a bed in the house and sexually assaulted her during a struggle.

According to Poore's arrest report, Poore admitted touching the girl but said it was consensual.
