FLAGSTAFF, Arizona — Flagstaff police have arrested a man they say was trying to set up a sexual encounter with an underage girl.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1qw861y) that 45-year-old John Henry Riley is being held Saturday at Coconino County Detention Facility on one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation.

According to police, Riley allegedly set up a Craigslist ad seeking a "new, young" girl from Northern Arizona University to watch him perform sexual acts in public.

A multi-agency task force arranged a meeting Thursday between Riley and an officer posing as a 16-year-old girl in a parking lot.

Police say Riley admitted to his involvement when arrested.

Authorities also recovered a loaded firearm from his vehicle.

The investigation is ongoing.
