A man is arrested after authorities say he sexually assaulted a young teenage girl.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office says early Saturday morning, it received a report that a man had given three teenage girls alcohol and sexually assaulted one of them.

Officials say after receiving a detailed description of the man's yellow truck, they were able to track him down just outside the sheriff's office around 11:30am.

That man, 39-year-old Samuel Barry was placed in handcuffs and booked into the Mesa County jail.

He faces three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and one count of sexual assault on a child age 15 or younger by a person of trust.
