GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland man has been arrested for allegedly trying to lure a 13-year-old girl into a sexual encounter.

The girl’s mother said she called police after discovering sexually explicit messages on her daughter’s tablet, sent by a man posing as a 16-year-old boy on the social networking and dating site MeetMe.com.

Gresham Police have identified the suspect as 22-year-old Christopher Scott.

The woman, who asked not to be identified to protect her daughter, said she began messaging Scott after finding nude photographs in the messages her daughter received from him, eventually getting him to admit he was over 18.

She contacted police, who arrested Scott after a two-month investigation.

Scott, who is already a registered sex offender, faces new charges of luring a minor and sexually corrupting a child.
