An area man has charged with soliciting a 12-year-old Naperville minor for sex over the Internet, according to the Naperville Police Department.
Bryan E. Woldman, 35, of 7015 Clearwater Drive in Plainfield Township, near Joliet, allegedly engaged in illicit conversations with the pre-teen via Facebook, cell phone, text and Skype, according to police.
Naperville Police High Technology Crimes Unit began an investigation Dec. 21 after the girl's mother discovered her daughter was allegedly communicating with Woldman, police said.
Over the course of several weeks, Woldman "exchanged sexually explicit text messages with what he thought was the 12-year-old female," according to a police release.
Police said Woldman then traveled from his home in unincorporated Plainfield to AMC Naperville 16 Showplace Theaters in south Naperville to meet with the girl for sex at about 7:45 p.m. Friday.
When Woldman arrived at the theater, he was taken into custody by Naperville police detectives and charged with indecent solicitation of a minor, traveling to meet a minor for a sexual encounter and grooming, according to police reports.
He was transferred to Will County Jail, where is he being held in lieu of $1 million bond.
Police ask anyone with information regarding similar activities involving Woldman to contact the Naperville Police Department High Technology Crimes Unit, 630-420-6666.
