Police jailed a 21-year-old North Platte man on suspicion of sexual assault of a 15-year-old Lincoln girl the morning of Dec. 31. 

In an affidavit for Christian Buck's arrest, police say the girl called them to her home about a sex assault. She told officers she let Buck, whom she met on Facebook, in when he was dropped off at her house, and they started kissing. When he tried to do more, she says she told him to stop, but he didn't.

She eventually was able to get out of her room and wake up her mom to get help. 

Police said they found Buck asleep in the girl's bed and arrested him. 

On Monday, prosecutors charged him with first-degree sexual assault of a child.
