MIDWEST CITY, Okla. – A 90-year-old man was arrested at Tinker Air Force Base (TAFB) Thursday evening for allegedly soliciting two women and one minor to get in his car.

According to officials, the two women and a 12-year-old girl were walking in the bowling alley parking lot when Danny Mansfield approached them and asked if they needed a ride.

Mansfield allegedly asked them to get in his vehicle, even offered the young girl $100 to get inside his truck.

One of the women said he blocked her car in so she could not back out and leave.

When TAFB Security Forces arrived, Mansfield was attempting to leave.

Security noticed Mansfield’s sweatpants were pulled down to his knees with no underwear and his genitals exposed.

News 4 reached out to Tinker officials and they said in a statement:
