The Burien Police Department announced on Wednesday (June 10) that they arrested a 29-year old Everett man who believed he was going to have sex with a 15-year old girl he met on social media. Turns out though that the 15-year old girl was actually a Burien Police Detective. Oops. Police busted the man for Communicating with a Minor for Immoral Purposes, as well as Attempted Rape of a Child in the 3rd Degree, both felony offenses. The man had made sexually explicit statements and sent nude photos of himself before he asked to meet for sex. After his arrest, he admitted he was trying to meet a 15-year old and knew his actions were illegal. Detectives seized his car and cell phone pending a search warrant. The man drove from Everett to Burien to meet the girl, intending to have sex with the child. When he arrived at the agreed-on meeting location, he was arrested by detectives. He was booked into the King County Jail and is being held on $75,000 bail. “Meeting a minor child for sex is illegal and Burien PD will not tolerate these dangerous predators,” police said. “We strongly encourage parents to chat with their kids about internet safety!”]]>
