Orlando, FL (February 27, 2019) – Police say that a 51-year-old man identified as Kenneth Strawn was arrested on Tuesday for soliciting a minor in Seminole County.
Various agencies worked together to make an arrest. They launched an investigation when a teenage victim reported that Strawn had messaged her multiple times from an app. The two had been exchanging messages on an app for several days before Strawn asked her if they could start talking on another platform.
When she did, Strawn asked the victim if she could send him sexual messages and also sent her sexually explicit photos of himself.
After a few days, Strawn traveled to Seminole County, where he made hotel reservations with the intent to engage in sexual activity with the minor. He has since been charged with traveling to meet a minor, transmitting harmful material to a minor, and solicitation of a minor, among other charges.
Currently, Strawn is being held without bail.
