Baltimore County police have charged a Parkton man with sexual solicitation of a minor and an attempted sex offense, accusing him of arranging a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old Towson girl on Facebook.
The Towson girl told police she began receiving Facebook messages in August from a man who told her he was 20. She met the man in February and realized he was older than that, police said. She stopped responding to his messages.
She told her parents, who called police March 6. Detectives began communicating with the suspect under the girl's account, and the suspect solicited the girl for sex, police said. Police arrested Freeland on March 12 when he arrived to meet the girl.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the county police child crime unit at (410) 853-3650.
