A 25-year-old Beaverton man is accused of sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl he met online.

Jeff Metschan was arrested Oct. 9 and police said he admitted knowing the victim was underage when he had sex with her. He was arraigned the following day on charges of rape, sodomy, unlawful sexual penetration and sex abuse.

The investigation began Oct. 8 when a parent called police after finding "concerning" text messages on her daughter's cell phone.

Detectives said Metschan met the 13-year-old girl on a social networking site called Badoo.com. The girl told investigators that she had sex with Metschan.

Metschan posted bail and was released on Oct. 14. He was back in court Thursday and pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

He is set to face trial Dec. 3.

Police advise parents to keep the computer in a family area where the screen is not hidden, check the computer's history often to see what sites children are visiting and set parental controls on the computer or router. Also, warn kids about the potential dangers of meeting people over the internet.
