WOODWAY, Texas (KWTX) Jonathan William Cross, 20, remained in the McLennan County Jail Monday after he was arrested and charged over the weekend with online solicitation of a minor.

Woodway officers arrested Cross on Saturday after a man contacted whom he believed to be a 15-year-old girl on a social media site “and used sexually explicit language discussing sexual acts he wished to perform on her.”

Cross was arrested after he arrived at the location where he expected to meet the girl, Woodway police said in a Facebook post.

Bond on the solicitation charge was set at $10,000

Cross was also held on a Waco warrant charging forgery.
