HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Los Angeles man was arrested at Harrisburg International Airport after he traveled to Pennsylvania to have sexual contact with a Lancaster County teenager, federal prosecutors said.
Stephen Chang, 27, made two previous trips to be with the Elizabethtown girl, in December 2014 and October 2015, and he enticed her to send sexual exploitative images, according to U.S. Attorney Peter Smith’s office.
Police intercepted his third planned meeting and arrested Chang at the airport on Saturday. Federal authorities charged him with three counts of travel with intent to engage in criminal sexual conduct.
Lancaster County detectives charged him with aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, and corruption of minors, for his alleged previous contact with the girl.
Smith’s office said Chang used Facebook to communicate with the girl since August 2014 when she was 13 years old. A tip to those conversations led to his arrest.
Chang is being held at Dauphin County Prison without bail.
Authorities are looking into possible additional charges and victims.
