PHOENIX — A man has been arrested and accused of sending inappropriate Facebook messages to an underage girl, including an offer to be her "sugar daddy."

Phoenix police officers responded Saturday to an apartment complex near Cave Creek Road and Union Hills Drive after a girl reportedly received sexually explicit messages from a man.

Police say the 15-year-old victim and her friend met Jonathan Andrew Wilson, 31, in the parking lot of their apartment complex. The following day, the girl started receiving sexually explicit messages via Facebook from Wilson, police say.

One of the messages officers found on the girl's phone reportedly said, "I know your [sic] sixteen, and I still want to come over so we can have 3-5 hours of wild, crazy sex." Another message warned the girl, saying, "You should read this alone."

Wilson allegedly offered to be her "sugar daddy" and mentioned taking her shopping and giving her money in exchange for sex.

Upon his arrest, Wilson reportedly denied the allegations, saying he wouldn't have done that because "he doesn't want to go back to prison." Arizona Department of Corrections records show Wilson served a year in prison for forgery.

Police say evidence of the messages the victim described were also found on Wilson's phone.

Wilson was arrested for luring a minor for sexual exploitation.
