Officers in Florida have apprehended and charged a 35-year-old man for allegedly soliciting sexual contact with a 15-year-old via Instagram.

The minor told the police and her mother that the accused Jonathan Galindo, also known as “Jonny G,” was handing out flyers at the park and handed her one, reported WPLG. He approached the girl again while she was walking her dog and persuaded her to connect on Instagram.

Detectives took over the teen’s account and lured the predator out. Assuming that he was talking to the minor, Galindo asked the teen to sneak out of her house in the night to meet with him at the park. On Tuesday, around midnight, police were waiting in place of the girl and Galindo was arrested at 2301 SW 13 St at Bryan Park.

According to the police, Galindo sent the teen Instagram texts and comments that were sexual. One text stated, “I have dated teenagers before, do you have a naughty side as well?” reported the outlet.

“I know you are a teen now, so I will be gentle,” one of the several texts read according to the police.

On Wednesday, the 35-year-old appeared in Miami-Dade County court. He faces three felony charges, including traveling to meet a minor for unlawful sex, using a computer to solicit a child for sex and unlawful use of a two-way communications device. He was also charged with possession of 20 or fewer grams of marijuana, reported Univision.

Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Lisa S. Walsh ordered Galindo to not come in contact with the victim or any other minor. “If there is a minor there, you are going to jail and even if you didn’t intend that there be a minor there,” Walsh was quoted as saying by WPLG.

“If you deliver groceries and there is a kid who is alone accepting groceries in the house, you are in violation of a court order, you are going to jail and we don’t want to see that happen.

“The MiamiPD Special Victims Unit is committed to protecting our children from predators,” tweeted Assistant Chief of Miami police, Armando Aguilar.

“This is something we take very seriously and is why we encourage parents to monitor and be aware of their child’s social media. Great Job and Arrest by our Special Victims Unit for taking a predator off of the street,” stated the office of the Miami Police Department on Twitter.
