PITTSBURG -- A Pittsburg man has been arrested on child sex charges, stemming from a February incident.
According to a release from the Pittsburg Police Department, on Feb. 3, PPD received a report concerning inappropriate communications and the sharing of a nude digital photograph between a 14-year-old female and an adult male.
Investigators followed up on this incident and allegedly located evidence verifying this contact occurred, and on Wednesday afternoon made a probable cause arrest on the suspect, identified as Khaymen A. Holt, 24, of Pittsburg.
Investigators determined the suspect and victim knew each other, and that this was allegedly a targeted solicitation and not a random incident. Holt was arrested on one count of felony sexual exploitation of a child less than 18 years of age and one count of felony electronic solicitation of a child between 14 and 16 years of age. Holt was taken into custody without incident and was taken to the Crawford County Jail.
