A Chandler man has been arrested after being accused of a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl over the course of several months.

Chandler police report that from March until July, 19-year-old Hasan Cole had sex multiple times with the victim. The relationship was reportedly discovered when the victim's brother found sexually explicit photos of the two on the victim's phone, which she shares with her mother.

Police are reviewing 9,000 images that are still on the phone.

When officers arrested Cole on July 13 at his apartment in Chandler, the victim was with him. Cole allegedly told police they had sex about 10 times, some of those times the sex was unprotected as the victim reportedly wanted to get pregnant. 

Cole has been charged with sexual conduct with a minor.
