Man arrested after attempting to meet minor for sex

Police arrested a Wednesday on charges of child solicitation, possession of a controlled substance, and providing obscene material to a minor.

The man added what he thought was a 15-year-old girl on social media, but the account belongs to an undercover police detective, according to the police. Once the detective had accepted the friend request the man sent sexual content to the account. According to the police, the man asked about the girl’s sex life, and sent photos of an “erect penis.”

Police said the man then began making arrangements to meet what he still thought was a 15-year-old girl, at the skate park on N. Kinser. Police set up in the park and waited for the man, who they took into custody, and discovered he also was in possession of methamphetamines.

Police noted that the images used on the social media page are not of a teenage girl and that the man had reached out to the social media account on his own.
