MONROE, Connecticut — A Maine woman who police said sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy she met through on 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.

This isn't the hidden dangers of video games.. it's the dangers of parents not paying attention to their children and who they are meeting. Maybe the kid's parents shouldn't have bought him a M-Rated game.

things you see in a CoD game aren't that bad, basically on par with a PG13 movie.

I am aware of this. But, when you allow a 14 year old play a game geared at adults.. they will come in contact online with them. Parents should have paid more attention.

I'm not knocking COD - or gaming - I just think that if the parents would have been more watchful of their 14-year old kid, on a mature video game, playing with anyone from around the world, and allowing him to meet someone they haven't met (juding by the fact they didn't know her real age).

I was allowed to play M-Rated games, but my parents would have never (ever) allowed me to meet someone that I met online.. ever.

this could have happened playing any video game. just another bad rap for COD
You are right about that, it could have happened on any game.. which is why the parents should have taken more control over their 14-year old playing online.

Haha, the best part is she's being charged with "risk of injury to a minor"! That's funny stuff right there. His parents obviously didn't pay attention to what he was doing. I doubt that he is tramatized by this, other than he's probably pissed at his parents for putting an end to it.
