London, July 26 (IANS) A man travelling with a teenage boy was sent back to the US following concerns that he planned to sexually exploit the youngster to tourists during the Olympic Games, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.

Jason Daniel Gandy, 35, arrived at Heathrow Airport with the 15-year-old boy last Thursday but was immediately stopped by suspicious immigration guards.

Officials received conflicting statements from the boy, his mother and Gandy and the pair were sent back to the US on separate planes.

Gandy, a massage therapist, was quizzed in his home city of Houston and now faces charges of a criminal complaint for transportation of a minor for a commercial sex act.

According to The Baytown Sun, a court heard that Gandy intended to perform massages in London to take advantage of international travellers seeking a “good time”.

Detectives heard the boy had previously performed massages in the nude and masturbated Gandy’s clients in Houston.
