(KTBS) - A Texarkana man is behind bars accused of trying to solicit a 15 year-old girl on the internet.
A joint investigation by the Pike County Sheriff's Office, Miller County Sheriff's Office, United States Marshal's Service and the Bowie County Sheriff's Office led to the arrest of 23 year-old Noble Solomon May for online solicitation of a minor.
May had reportedly been communicating online with who he thought was a 15 year-old girl. However, thankfully the girl was actually a peace officer conducting an investigation. During reported conversations between May and the would-be victim, May said he wanted to meet the 15 year-old to have sexual relations with her. The 15 year-old told May that she could get a ride from a 16 year-old friend to meet him. She also told May that her friend had a 7 year-old sister and May asked the female to bring her friend's 7 year-old sister to their meeting so he could have sex with her too.
To his surprise, May found peace officers waiting for him at their meeting spot instead of the young females.
May was taken into custody without incident. His bond has been set at $50,000.
