LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Cloverport, Kentucky, man has been arrested months after police say he sent a nude photo to a random 13-year-old girl.
According to an arrest warrant, the incident took place on Aug. 30, 2017. The chief of Cloverport Police says the victim was a 13-year-old stranger randomly selected on social media by 30-year-old Tyler Grant. Police say Grant exposed himself, took the picture, then used his mobile device to send the image to the teen.
The chief says that after police seized Grant's phone as evidence, Grant logged onto his social media accounts and tried to delete the image.
A warrant was issued for Grant's arrest on May 15, and he was arrested by the Breckinridge County Sheriff's Office the next day.
He's charged with first-degree indecent exposure, engaging in the prohibited use of an electronic communications system to procure a minor or peace officer for sexual offenses, promoting a sexual performance by a minor and tampering with physical evidence.
He is currently being held in the Breckinridge County Detention Center.
