WAKEENEY, Kan. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after a child sex offender pulled up in his vehicle next to a girl and offered her a ride home from a northwest Kansas swimming pool.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the WaKeeney Police Department said in a Facebook post that the girl refused and told a parent, who called the department. The police chief then went to the pool and called the sheriff’s office and the Kansas Highway Patrol. The man was arrested Tuesday and booked into jail on suspicion of violating probation. The probation had been ordered after he was convicted of attempted sexual exploitation of a child in a December 2015 incident in another county.

WaKeeney is located about 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of Hays along Interstate 70.
