Posted: Updated:

STARK COUNTY, Ohio - A Cuyahoga Falls man is in the Stark County jail after offering $400 dollars for a female child sex slave.

Detectives with the Alliance police department arrested 36-year-old Robert Thomas, Jr. on Saturday when he showed up with cash-in-hand to buy a 10-year-old girl.

An Alliance officer, who works with the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, began a conversation with Thomas after seeing an online ad for an arranged marriage.

Thomas told the officer he was looking for a young girl to "train her to please him."

Thomas is charged human trafficking among other felonies.
