A 13-year-old girl from Kansas is home safe after she was convinced to leave the state and sexually assaulted by a man she met on the children’s gaming app, Roblox.

Howard Graham, 33, was arrested on March 1 and charged with sex trafficking, kidnapping and rape, according to police. He convinced the girl to sneak out of her house in Topeka, so that he could pick her up and drive her 900 miles away to his home in Clayton County, Georgia.

They started speaking on Feb. 18 through the app and met up only two days after. Police said that the girl was sexually assaulted “many times” while with Graham.

“We’re truly lucky we found this young girl and she was alive,” the Clayton County police captain said during a news conference on Wednesday.

“I wish people would pay more attention to what their kids are doing. Predators will go on and prey on little kids,” he added.

The girl eventually contacted her mother through Roblox on February 24 and gave her the address of a Dollar General where she was taken by Graham. This led police to track down and arrest Graham at his job in Georgia, police said.

Roblox has been accused of allowing explicit content on its app and being a place where children and adults can engage in sexual encounters, according to a report from BBC news. Roblox told BBC that it admits that there is a small “subset” of people breaking the rules but that, "We have zero tolerance for sexual content or behavior of any kind, and we take swift action against anyone found to be acting in breach of our Community Standards."

Following the kidnapping of the 13-year-old girl, Roblox employees released statements expressing their concern over the case.

“We were deeply saddened to hear about this case. There is nothing more important to parents — including the many parents who work at Roblox — than ensuring that children are safe when they learn and play, online or off,” William Nevius, senior director of corporate communications and public affairs at Roblox, said in a statement shared with McClatchy News.

Roblox spokesperson James Kay said he was "deeply saddened" and ensured that the company keeps safety on the app a priority.

"We have stringent safety systems and a team of thousands of moderators who enforce a strict set of community standards on Roblox, including zero tolerance for sexual content of any kind," Kay said.
