MONROE, Connecticut — A Maine woman who police said sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy she met through an online computer game has been arrested.

Cassandra Grant, 22, of Rockland turned herself in Monday on charges of second-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor, police said.

She was released after posting $10,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Bridgeport March 21.

According to a press release from Monroe police, the boy and Grant met online a year ago while playing “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” on Sony Playstation 3. The boy was 14 at the time, and Grant was 21.

The two developed a relationship by texting, calling, and using a web camera, the release states. They had a face-to-face meeting in December 2011, police said, adding, “At that point, the two reportedly engaged in sexual intercourse.”

The boy’s parents called police in December when they learned Grant’s true age, police said.

Monroe officers worked with the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit on the investigation, which included forensic analysis of both the Sony Playstation 3 and cell phones, police said.
