ANCHORAGE- An Anchorage man has been charged with sexually abusing underage girls on trips to Cambodia.
43-year-old Jason Jayavarman was arrested Wednesday in Anchorage.
Jayavarman is the owner of Jason's International Youth Hostel in Anchorage.
Prosecutors say an undercover investigator pretended to be interested in traveling with Jayavarman to meet underage girls and they planned a trip for next week.
Prosecutors say records indicate Jayavarman starting in 2009 traveled a dozen times to Cambodia and had sex with girls as young as 13.
The charges say Jayavarman recorded the sessions on videos, which were seized.
