EDMOND, Okla. – An Edmond man was arrested after he allegedly sent a series of lewd text messages to a 12-year-old girl.

Authorities say the victim’s mother first discovered the sexually graphic text messages on Sunday and called police.

When officers arrived, they set up a meeting with 28-year-old Mohammed Alsalman by posing as the victim.

After Alsalman showed up to the house, police took him into custody.

The suspect allegedly told police he’s not a U.S. citizen and has been here four years attending college UCO.
