Bowie County, Texas (KETK) — An East Texas man is behind bars after attempting to solocit a teenage girl online for sex.
A joint investigation by the Pike County Sheriff’s Office, Miller County Sheriff’s Office, United States Marshal’s Service and Bowie County Sheriff’s Office resulted in the arrest of Noble Solomon May, 23, of Texarkana for online solicitation of a minor.
May had been communicating online with who he thought was a 15-year-old-female.
The "girl" was really a peace officer conducting an investigation. During the course of his conversations, May said he wanted to meet the 15-year-old female to have sexual relations with her. When the female responded she had obtained a ride from a 16-year-old friend to meet May, he asked her if her friend had a little sister.
The female told May that her friend had a seven year old sister. May asked the female to bring her friend’s seven 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 and his bond has been set at $50,000.
