During this time, Fahrbach reportedly requested 'topless photos' of the girl and said he "wanted to take the child's virginity." 

Police say Fahrbach also allegedly told the '14-year-old' that he had a prior sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl. 

He also said he had nude photos of other minor girls on his phone. 

Fahrbach was arrested when he showed up with condoms to take the girl home with him.

He has been charged with luring a minor for sex and attempted sexual conduct with a minor.
