LA JARA, Colo. - The Conejos County Sheriff's Office says it has arrested a man for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old girl.

Danny Manzanares, 49, of Alamosa is facing charges for sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust.

The sheriff's office says that it began investigating Manzanares on September 9, 2013, when it received a tip from the Conejos County Department of Social Services.
