April 10, 2019

MONTVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say an enlisted sailor had sex with a 13-year-old boy he met on a dating app.

State police say 27-year-old Chazzman Chung cultivated a relationship with a boy and had sex with him in December in the barracks at the Naval Submarine Base New London.

Chung has been charged with enticing a minor by computer and risk of injury to a minor.

Police say they were called to a home in Griswold in December by a mother reporting that her teenage son had sex with an older man.

Police say they interviewed Chung in February in connection to the incident.

The Navy says it is investigating the assault allegations.

Chung’s case was not listed in online court records and it was unclear if he has a lawyer.
