ANTHEM, Ariz. -- An Anthem man was arrested after he allegedly lured a 12-year-old girl looking for baby-sitting work into his home, locked the doors and began a sexual conversation with the youngster, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. He did not assault her, authorities said.
Michael Whitlow, 26, was booked on charges of kidnapping and luring a minor for sexual exploitation. He also faces a numerous drug charges.
A number of neighbors in the area took note of a flier tacked onto a mailbox a couple of weeks ago.
According to sheriff's deputies, so did Whitlow, who answered the ad to allegedly lure the girl to his house for sex.
Once inside, Whitlow "locked the door," according to court paperwork. He then reportedly told her "he could hardly keep his hands off of her" and that "she was a very attractive girl," according to court documents.
Whitlow eventually let the girl leave without assaulting her, sheriff's deputies said.
He later told authorities he refrained from having sex because he feared getting her pregnant and because she didn't want to, deputies said.
Whitlow is being held on $64,000 bond.
