Sparks Police have arrested a man on several sexual assault charges.

Police arrested 44-year-old Matthew Aaron Burr on August 7th. Police say he worked as a truck driver and would meet a 12-year-old girl using a social media app called "Whisper" when he came into town.

Police say he paid her in exchange for sex, and photographed her performing sexual acts.

Burr is being held at the Washoe County Jail on other charges including lewdness with a child under 14, possession of child pornography, first degree kidnapping, luring a child for sex.

He's scheduled to make a court appearance next Monday.

Sparks Police and the FBI are investigating to see if he had any other victims in other parts of the country.
