FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP -- A 19-year-old has been arrested for alleged sexual activity involving two 14-year-old girls.

The Portage County Sheriff's Office says their investigation began after allegations arose from a  Feb. 17 slumber party that Benjamin Schwartz was reportedly chaperoning in the 1900 block of Kimberly Drive.

Authorities say Schwartz separated one of the girls from the other juveniles when the alleged sexual activity took place.

During their investigation, authorities learned Schwartz allegedly had sex with a different 14-year-old girl at the same address the day prior.

Schwartz has been charged with rape and importuning.

He is being held at the Portage County Jail and authorities say additional charges are possible as the investigation is presented to a grand jury.

He will be arraigned on Monday, March 4 at 1:15 p.m.
