Christopher Sims, 30, from Lorain, Ohio, has been arrested on charges that he raped an 11-year-old girl that he met through Facebook, reports the Daily Mail.
According to Lorain Police Detective Tabitha Angello, Sims manipulated the girl into meeting with him so that he could assault her.

She left her home, which is also in Lorain, and was reported missing by her father on February 19. She returned home on February 26 but when her father woke up the next day, she had vanished.
Two days later, he was driving through the neighborhood looking for his daughter when he saw her by Sims’ apartment block, Angello said.
He went to the apartment but the young girl had already fled out of the back door, so he stayed in the area.
At 1am on March 1, he saw his daughter leave Sims’ house with him, Angello said.
They climbed in his car and the father followed as he called police. Officers pulled over Sims’ car 30 minutes later and found the young girl in the backseat, Angello said.
The young girl admitted to having sex with Sims, who was previously indicted “for rape, gross sexual imposition and unlawful conduct with a minor in 2010 for an incident in 2004,” reports the Mail.
Sims is being held on a $1 million bond and his next court appearance is scheduled for March 13.
