COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Arrest documents show the disturbing details of an investigation that led to the arrest of 24-year old Anthony Lagorio.

Lagorio faces a charge of soliciting for child prostitution, a class three felony.

In April, Lagorio was arrested for allegedly exposing himself on his front porch.

According to arrest documents, he was selling a refrigerator on Craiglist just two weeks later. A woman contacted him about the fridge. During their conversation, Lagorio allegedly asked her if she knew of any children between the ages of 8 and 12 who would have sex with him. She called the police.

Arrest documents say investigators set up a fake Facebook account, pretending to be a 16-year old girl. They friended Lagorio. During their conversations, he allegedly sent photos and videos of his private area.

Detectives convinced Lagorio that he was going to a home in Colorado Springs to have sex with two 16-year-old girls for $50. Instead, he was arrested by police when he arrived.

Lagorio’s first court appearance is on Aug. 18.
