An Oklahoma doctor is facing several felony charges after he allegedly drove to Florida earlier this year and had sex with a teen girl he met online.
The Bradenton Herald reports that authorities arrested 27-year-old Angelo Francisco Trigoso-Jara, of Oklahoma City, at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Wednesday.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Trigoso-Jara met a 15-year-old girl online in January on a website that connects people together anonymously through video and text. The pair eventually began chatting on Snapchat and made plans to meet in Florida. The suspect drove from Oklahoma City, arriving the girl’s Venice area home at around 1 a.m. on January 19. He then allegedly picked the victim up in his vehicle and drove to a hotel off of 2900 block of Executive Drive in Venice, where they pair had sex.
On February 26, when the teen’s mother found out what happened, she contacted police. The victim told authorities that Trigoso-Jara told her was 23 years old; she later found out he was 27. Authorities also uncovered evidence on the teen’s phone, which reportedly included nude photos the suspect sent of himself.
Detectives with the U.S. Customs and U.S. Marshals North Texas Fugitive Task Force intervened at the airport and took the suspect into custody. A sheriff’s spokesperson stated that the suspect was not en route to visit the teen when arrested.
