BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A Nampa, Idaho man has been charged with enticing a 12-year-old girl into traveling from New Mexico to Idaho to engage in sexual activity with her.

Eighteen-year-old Alex Trowell was arraigned in Boise’s U.S. District Court on Wednesday. Prosecutors say he met the girl while playing the online videogame World of Warcraft and that he bought her an airplane ticket to fly to Boise on April 20.

Court documents also allege that Trowell drove to New Mexico in December to meet with the minor. The girl’s mother notified New Mexico police who called Trowell en route and he returned to Idaho without meeting her.

Trowell faces two felony charges — enticement of a minor and transportation of a minor — each punishable by at least 10 years in prison.
