A Northeast Ohio man faces sexual assault charges after authorities say he brought a male juvenile to a cabin in the Hocking Hills. 

According to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, Ashtabula County resident Jason Sams brought the juvenile to Hocking County in March.
A witness called Hocking County Sheriff's Office after seeing what he thought was illegal conduct.
Investigators obtained a search warrant for Sams' North Kingsville home and computer for evidence.
Several boxes of potential evidence has been removed from the home.
Sams was arrested in North Kingsville Wednesday morning.
Hocking County Sheriff Lanny North said anyone who may have seen or rented any of their properties to Sams is encouraged to contact the Hocking County Sheriff's Office.
DeWine says it's possible there are more victims in the case.
