A Florida construction worker was arrested on Monday, accused of “preying” on a little girl, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
The arrest report says that Michael Lee Caraway, who is from Hudson, Florida, in Pasco County, was on a recent remodeling job when he exchanged phone numbers with an 11-year-old girl who was at the home while the work was being done.
According to the arrest affidavit, Pasco County Sheriff’s Office computer-crimes deputies responded to the victim’s home after her guardians alerted authorities of suspicious behavior: They believed that the child was being solicited online by a peodphile she met when he was doing construction work at the house in unincorporated Polk County. Their suspicions were correct, cops say.
“He then began sending her nude pics, and having her send nude pics of herself back to him, and had very sexually explicit conversations with her of what he wanted to do to her,” read the post, which adds that Caraway sent the girl “adult porn.”
