LEBANON — A Lebanon man is facing charges of attempted sexual assault, after police say he went to a local park to meet a juvenile for sex — only to find Lebanon police officers waiting for him instead.

According to Lebanon police, members of the department’s Cyber Crimes Unit were involved in an investigation through a social media provider targeting individuals contacting children. According to police, officers engaged in conversation through social media with a man identified as Nathan Malmquist, 39, of Lebanon.

Police said Malmquist went to a local park on Monday to meet an individual he believed to be a juvenile to engage in sexual acts.

Malmquist was met by Lebanon police and arrested on charges of certain uses of a computer, prohibited; attempted felonious sexual assault; attempted indecent exposure and lewdness; and attempted sexual assault.

He was held overnight and arraigned Tuesday in Grafton County Superior Court, where he was held on $20,000 cash bail.
