— Cumberland County authorities charged a Fayetteville man with texting lewd pictures of himself to a 14-year-old girl.

Christopher Allen Anspach, 25, of 743 Poole Drive, was charged with two counts of disseminating obscene material to a minor.

Investigators said Anspach met the girl at the Round-A-Bout skating rink on Feb. 14 and exchanged phone numbers. They began sending text messages to one another, and the girl told authorities the messages were sexually oriented and that Anspach consistently encouraged her to send nude pictures.

The girl's father discovered the photos on her cell phone on Feb. 18 and filed a complaint with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, authorities said.
