Norman Police undercover investigation leads to arrest for Lewd Proposals to a Child

Norman, Okla. – The Norman Police Department Criminal Investigations and Special Investigations sections arrested a man for Lewd Proposals to a Child after he made sexual conversation with an undercover cop posing as an underage girl.
