West Linn Police officers arrested a Portland man Friday morning after an investigation showed he tried to meet and have sex with a 14-year-old girl.

According to investigators, Steven James Hilton, 42, performed sexual acts on himself during a video call with the teen, encouraged her to send nude pictures and planned to meet with her before going to a hotel for sex.

The girl’s father discovered that his daughter had been using his work computer to communicate with Hilton using Skype. Officers then posed as the girl and had further conversations with Hilton.

According to police, Hilton admitted to having conversations with the child when he was served with the search warrant. Officers seized two computers, an iPad, and iPhone and other devises Friday morning from Hilton, who claimed to be a veteran of the Air Force and work in IT in the Portland area.

Hilton was taken to the Clackamas County Jail and faces charges of on line corruption of a minor and endangering the welfare of a minor. His bail was set at $22,500.
