(Salt Lake City, KSL News) -- A Provo man is accused of having sexual contact with a woman without telling her he's HIV positive.

He was arrested last week at the Amenity Motor Inn.

Police say the man's estranged wife phoned them, saying she suspected her husband was at the motel with another woman, and the other woman may not know her husband is HIV positive.

An officer spoke with that other woman through the motel door, telling her of the wife's warning and that she could file a police report.

"She later called the police department and said that she would like to file charges against this man, stating that she'd asked him if he had any sort of diseases and he stated to her that he did not," says Provo Police Department spokesperson Karen Mayne.

Police have yet to confirm the man's HIV status.

Meanwhile the Utah County Attorney is trying to determine what charges to file against the man.
