A 14-year-old girl was having none of it this week when a 51-year-old man allegedly put a sticky note on her phone soliciting sex.
According to charging documents, Marcus Lennox Douglas approached the victim Wednesday night in Washington, D.C.’s Cleveland Park area, put the sticky note on her cell phone, and walked away, NBC Washington reported.
“I want to do some nasty things to u pay to play $$ Marcus text me…” the note said, including a phone number that detectives say belongs to Douglas.
The teen walked straight to a nearby firehouse and called police.
The following morning, detectives texted Douglas, taking on the identity of a 14-year-old. The charging documents say Douglass, who called himself a “hip” 45-year-old, asked about the teen’s sexual history, and worried that her mother might find the sticky note if she hadn’t disposed of it. Eventually, he agreed to pay $80 for oral sex and set up a meeting on 5th Street NW.
But instead of a teen girl, Douglas was met on 5th Street by police detectives and agents from the FBI’s Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force.
Douglas, charged with enticing a child, was still behind bars early Saturday evening, according to jail records.
