SHOCK: Dad Posts CRAIGSLIST Ad for Someone to Rape 11-Year-Old Daughter...
(ORLANDO SENTINEL) -- A Missouri man was arrested after police say he took his 11-year-old daughter to meet someone who agreed to sexually assault the girl in response to a Craigslist ad, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Authorities in St. Louis, Mo. were alerted to the Craigslist ad when a user reported it as abuse. From there, they reached out to 32-year-old Anthony Brinkman pretending to be someone interested in performing sexual acts on the girl.
Brinkman told the undercover officer, who was posing as a 27-year-old woman, that he wanted her to be his girlfriend so the two could both assault the girl with sex toys, according to the Post-Dispatch. He also wanted help in finding a boyfriend for his daughter.
The agreement was that Brinkman would bring his daughter to a Cracker Barrel restaurant to meet the woman, and if the two hit it off, he would take her back to his home so they could abuse the girl.
Instead, Brinkman was met by officers who arrested him at the scene about 48 hours after he posted the Craigslist ad online.
Authorities told the Post-Dispatch they don't believe the girl had been abused in the past, but that there may be child pornography Brinkman's home.
