Police: 11-year-old Austintown girl receives sexting messages

Posted: Updated:
AUSTINTOWN TWP., Ohio -

An Austintown man has asked the police to investigate sexually graphic text messages and pictures sent to his eleven-year-old daughter.

The South Raccoon Road man called officers after discovering the conversations when they appeared on his iPod that he had previously synchronized to his daughter's mobile phone, allowing the father to monitor her activity.

Police say the person sending the texts, who appears to be an adult male, sent the girl a picture of his penis and a picture of himself in a bathtub.

Text images of people engaged in sex acts were also sent to the child's phone.

The male also sent a text asking the girl to perform a sex act on him, according to the report.

Officers interviewed the 11-year-old who said that she met the man on Snapchat several months ago before her father deactivated the account.

She told police that the two had similar text conversations in the past, but she deleted them as the man had suggested.

The girl told investigators that she complied with the suspect's request to send him a picture of her tongue.

Although the girl told police that the two never discussed her age, text conversations indicate that the person on the other end is aware that she is of school age since she has mentioned school to him.

Detectives took the girl's phone and her father's iPad for further investigation.

The police report does not indicate whether or not the suspect is a local resident.

No charges have been filed.
