DAYTON, Ohio - A southwest Ohio man has been arrested for soliciting sex from a 12-year-old boy on Facebook.

The Dayton Daily News ( http://bit.ly/19tC3sz ) reports Dayton police arrested 19-year-old Tyler Mitchell on Tuesday at a branch of the Dayton Metro Library where he was allegedly communicating with the boy online.

Police Sgt. Larry Tolpin told the newspaper the boy's father assumed his son's identity online when he became aware of the situation. The boy's father contacted police when during the conversation Mitchell allegedly propositioned to have sex.

Tolpin says officers went to the library and found Mitchell using a public access computer with his Facebook account still on the screen.

Mitchell is been held at the Montgomery County jail in an initial charge of importuning. He has no attorney on record.
