An Enid man sits behind bars after the city's police department received a tip about him engaging in a sexually explicit conversation with a 17-year-old Indiana girl.
23-year-old Thomas Chattam Jr. was arrested at his home Friday.
The Enid Police Department says a report was sent to them from the Evansville Police Department in Evansville, Indiana. A detective there said Chattam engaged in a sexually explicit conversation with a 17-year-old in the city. The detective there also said Chattam sent the girl sexually explicit photos of himself and received sexually explicit photos from the victim.
Enid police arrived at his house Friday and interviewed him where they say he admitted to the allegations.
He was arrested and charged with soliciting sexual conduct or communication with a minor by use of technology and possession of child pornography. He's currently in the Garfield County Detention Facility on a $75,000 bond.
