Police believe the suspect, 21-year-old Jonathan Prasad, may have been in contact with other under-age girls as well, so take a good look at his photo.

Investigators say he contacted the victim through a social networking site, and sent her inappropriate pictures of himself by text message.

Those messages continued even after the girl's father found them and told him to stop.
