SALT LAKE CITY — A Salt Lake man was arrested Tuesday and accused of engaging in illegal sexual activity with a 15-year-old.

Patrick Gasser, 45, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of two counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, enticing a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Gasser met his victim when she was 15 on an undisclosed dating app, according to a police booking affidavit.

“(He) and victim had sex several times from October 2019 to January 2020 at (Gasser’s) home,” the affidavit states.

Gasser also sent the girl text messages talking about sexual encounters and offered her Adderall, according to police.
