MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. -Investigators have arrested a man they say propositioned a young Maine girl online and send her nude photos of himself.

According to the Manatee County Sheriff's Offfice, in December 2013, 27-year-old Broderick Furlow contacted the 12-year-old victim, who lives in Augusta, Maine, on a messaging application.

Broderick solicited the minor for what investigators describe as a "ghastly sex act" after having knowledge that she was only 12 years old. Broderick also sent two images of his erect penis to the girl.

The victim notified her parents who contacted the Augusta Police Department. An investigation was commenced which resulted in Furlow being charged with two counts of Transmission of Harmful Images to a Minor and one count of Soliciting a Minor for a Sex Act.

Furlow has a history of several arrests on the Suncoast, including robbery, DUI, and indecent exposure.
