GILSUM — Detectives from the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force and the New Hampshire State Police Troop C Barracks arrested 27-year-old Eric Michael Castine of Keene on Wednesday, Dec. 27, following an investigation into alleged sexual assaults facilitated through social media.

The arrest warrant was issued after a report to State Police suggested that Castine used the app Snapchat to commit sexual assault against a person under the age of 16.

Castine is charged with one count of felonious sexual assault under NH RSA 632-A:3, a Class B Felony.

The investigation into his interactions with minors continues, and authorities anticipate that additional charges may be filed.
