PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man on a bicycle rode up to a 14-year-old girl in southeast Portland, showed her a bag filled with marijuana and repeatedly asked her to go to an abandoned house for sex, according to court documents.

Joshua Poehler, 29, was arrested Monday on the charge of luring a minor.

A probable cause affidavit states Poehler rode his red bike up to a girl at Southeast 83rd and Foster and told her she was "really sexy for being so young" and that "some young girls like older guys."

Poehler then said he wanted to take her to a nearby abandoned house, give her alcohol, get high and have sex, according to the affidavit.

Court documents state Poehler asked what school she went to, and she told him she was in high school.

According to court documents, Poehler also pulled out a plastic bag filled with marijuana and told the girl she could hold it.

The girl told police she tried to create space between them, but Poehler propositioned her at least 20 times, using vulgar language.

After following the girl for eight blocks, a probable cause affidavit states Poehler grabbed her arm and said, "c'mon, let's go."

The girl continued walking and Poehler told her he would be in the park, the affidavit states. The teen had taken a photo of Poehler that she provided to police.

An officer checked the area and found Poehler riding a red bicycle at Southeast 82nd and Holgate with a bag full of marijuana in his jacket, as the girl had described, according to court documents.

Court documents state Poehler admitted to the officer he had been talking to a "really good looking girl" and said he thought she was 21 years old.

A probable cause affidavit states once Poehler was in the patrol car, he offered to perform oral sex on the officer if he would let him go.

Poehler was arraigned in court Tuesday and his bail was set at $5,000. He is due back in court Nov. 4.
