A 65-year-old salesman is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old West Fargo girl he met on the Internet, police said.

Robert Francis Blasey of Zimmerman, Minn., was arrested in Bismarck on Wednesday, said Detective Ken Zeeb of the West Fargo Police Department.


Police believe that Blasey drove to West Fargo at least once in the last two months to have sex with the girl, Zeeb said. The sex was consensual but illegal because of the girl's age.
