PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police detectives arrested a 22-year-old man accused of trying to meet a 10-year-old girl for sex.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says the investigation began Thursday morning when police got a tip that Michael Bowen was texting nude photos of himself to the girl while making plans to have a sexual encounter with her at noon.

Simpson says detectives established surveillance and arrested the man when he showed up at the arranged location. He says detectives later identified two other girls as victims.

Bowen was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of online sexual corruption, attempted sex abuse and other crimes.
