Keeping your children safe is every parent’s priority and one mom didn’t hesitate to get the cops involved when she saw that her young daughter and others like her were in danger.
The unnamed mom was reportedly going through her 15-year-old daughter’s inbox in the Facebook Messenger app and allegedly found some disturbing and alarming messages from 55-year-old Leon Harrison.
According to WBALTBV, Harrison was soliciting sex from the teen in exchange for money.
The mom, concerned for her daughter’s safety, called the cops after finding the messages. She allowed cops to pose as her daughter in an “identity takeover” who continued communicating with him. He agreed to meet the girl he thought he was talking to at a MacDonald’s in Odenton, Maryland. But instead of meeting her at the McDonald’s, he met police in the parking lot. He was arrested by investigators and apparently made a full confession.
Harrison faces charges for prostitution and sexual solicitation of a minor.
Now police are asking anyone who may have been victimized by this man to come forward.
“We are grateful the mother had the wherewithal to be cognizant of what her daughter was doing on the internet, was paying attention to what her daughter was doing or was in communication with her daughter,” Anne Arundel County police spokesman Marc Limansky said, according to WBALTV.
