SARASOTA, FL - A Sarasota man has been picked up in Orlando on charges of lewd and lascivious molestation.

Sarasota Police received a tip last week that 66-year-old David Benson had inappropriate contact with a teen in Homosassa. The girl visits Sarasota and is known to the suspect. The molestation occurred during two different times, according to a report.

Police got a tip that Benson may flee to England, and with the help of the U.S. Air Marshalls he was arrested at Orlando International Airport. When Benson is returned to Sarasota, he faces charges of lewd and lascivious molestation, lewd battery and sexual battery. He is in the Orange County Jail.
