A Cuba, Missouri man is in police custody after allegedly placing an online ad asking for someone to sexually assault an 11 year old female relative. St. Louis County Police say that ad was reported and prompted them to set up a sting.
They arrested 32 year old Anthony Brinkman Friday after he arrived to meet an undercover police officer at a south county Cracker Barrel restaurant.
Police say Brinkman had brought the child with him. She is with her family. Police say they don't believe Brinkman had assaulted her, but they are still investigating.
Brinkman has been charged with attempted statutory sodomy. He's jailed on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
