A Seven Springs man is accused of soliciting a minor for sexual favors, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested and charged Aureo Antonio Lopez, 34, with indecent liberties with a child, soliciting prostitution of a minor and first-degree kidnapping.
Authorities said a girl reported she had been sexually assaulted by an acquaintance who was responsible for taking her to and from work. The girl told authorities that Lopez took her to unknown locations and solicited her for sexual favors.
The girl told the sheriff’s office that Lopez also tried to make sexual advancements toward her, but she escaped and told a family member.
Lopez was placed in jail under a $300,000 secured bond.
