COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) — North Bend police arrested a member of the U.S. Coast Guard who is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

The World newspaper of Coos Bay reports that 20-year-old Luke Kanada of North Bend was conditionally released from jail Thursday after being charged with third-degree rape and other crimes.

Police say the charges stem from a relationship Kanada and the girl had this summer.

Kanada's arraignment is scheduled for Monday.
