CHRISTIANSBURG (WSLS 10) - A Roanoke man has been charged for alleged contact with a minor.

Devante Marcel Payne, 19, was charged Wednesday with one count of carnally knowing without the use of force, a child of the age of 14 years, which is a class 4 felony. 

An investigation by the Christiansburg Internet Crimes Against Children Unit (ICAC) led them to Payne. Roanoke City Police arrested Payne on March 11.

Payne was transported to the Roanoke City Jail. The charges against him stem from an incident that allegedly took place in Christiansburg sometime in January.

The investigation is ongoing.
