CHICKASHA, Okla. — A registered sex offender has been arrested after allegedly sending Facebook messages with lewd proposals to a 10-year-old girl.
According to police, Chickasha officers responded to a call from a woman on April 25 who reported her 10-year-old daughter received sexually explicit messages from the adult male on Facebook.
"His Facebook profile had a lot of pictures that were obviously of younger girls," said Lt. Scott Weaver with the Chickasha Police Department.
Weaver said the page was under the name 'Dusty Tarralba.'
"There was communications going back and forth that included lewd proposals," Weaver said. "I believe there was an exchange of photographs."
According to the arrest affidavit, the suspect asked the girl for a full body picture, if she had ever had sex and then told her: "I can make you feel good."
When she told him she was only 10 years old, he replied with: "Mmmm perfect."
"The mother was very concerned, wanted something done about it of course, as would any mother whose 10-year-old daughter was talking to a 29-year-old man making lewd or indecent proposals to her," Weaver said.
Once police investigated, they discovered Dusty Torralba was a fake name and it was Dusty Lee Groseclose, a registered sex offender, behind the computer screen.
"Investigators went out and were able to locate him, brought him in and interviewed him," Weaver said. "When they interviewed him, he did admit to his part in this."
This isn't his first run-in with the law.
Groseclose was arrested back in 2008 for indecent exposure and failure to register as a sex offender or comply with that registration in 2009, 2013 and 2014. All of those charges are felonies.
"Parents really need to stay in their children's lives to the point of monitoring their social media accounts, making sure they're not locking things out or doing anything that would be inappropriate," Weaver said. "As well as if they've got a cell phone, you need to watch those messages, who they're talking to."
Groseclose was arrested on charges of lewd of indecent proposals to a child under the age of 12.
