DENVER -

Prosecutors say a Denver firefighter is facing charges including attempted sexual assault of a child.

Prosecutors in Jefferson County say Ronald Michael Asciutto, of Denver, was arrested Thursday while trying to meet up with someone he believed to be a teen girl with whom he had chatted online. The person was an undercover investigator.

An arrest affidavit alleges he used sexually graphic language with the person.

Formal charges haven't been filed yet, but prosecutors say he was arrested on suspicion of Internet luring of a child, Internet sexual exploitation of a child, and attempted sexual assault of a child.

Someone who answered a phone number listed for Ascuitto hung up without commenting.
