Police asking for help finding man wanted for making lewd proposals to a child

OWASSO, Okla. – Authorities in Owasso are asking for the public’s help finding a man who is accused of making lewd or indecent proposals to a child.

The Owasso Police Department told the Tulsa World that Nicholas Wang met a 13-year-old girl at a ‘furry’ meet up in Tulsa earlier this year. A ‘furry’ is someone who enjoys dressing up in an animal costume.

Last January, a member of the ‘furry’ community called police after suspecting inappropriate behavior between Wang and the girl.

Investigators later determined that the pair spoke through text message and would meet up in person.

In July, the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office filed an arrest warrant for Wang on a complaint of lewd or indecent proposals to a child.

Since then, Owasso police say they have not had any luck finding him.

He used to be heavily involved in live action role play, costume play and the furry genre.

If you have any information on Wang’s whereabouts, call the Owasso Police Tip-Line at (918) 272-2677.
