Lawrence police arrested a 38-year-old Lawrence man Wednesday evening on a charge of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child.
Capt. Paul Fellers said the alleged incident occurred between 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Police were called to the 1300 block of Prospect Avenue in east Lawrence.
The suspect was accused of making an indecent solicitation to a 12-year-old female family member, Fellers said. Several officers were part of the investigation, and the suspect was later arrested and taken to the Douglas County Jail.
Formal charges had not yet been filed Thursday afternoon. Amy McGowan, a chief assistant Douglas County district attorney, said the man is expected to make a first appearance in court Friday afternoon.
