Fairfax Police: Falls Church Man Catfished, Solicited Sex From Minors

Fairfax County police said that a 21-year-old man from Falls Church is facing felony charges for allegedly soliciting sex from minors via social media accounts.

Police said that they began their investigation last month after a minor told their parents about unwanted sexual contact with the man.

Detectives believe the man “used several social media accounts with false names while also misrepresenting his age to solicit sex from minors,” police said.

The man, who was arrested yesterday (Wednesday), is facing two felony charges of carnal knowledge and the use of a communication device to solicit a minor, according to police.

He was taken to the Adult Detention Center and released on bond, police said.
