A Centralia man was arrested this week after allegedly sending photographs of his penis to a 15-year-old girl.
Kyle L. Duncan, 19, made his first appearance Thursday in Lewis County Superior Court on one charge of immoral communication with a minor.
He was granted $25,000 unsecured bail and released from the Lewis County Jail. His next court hearing is scheduled for Oct. 12.
According to court documents, the Centralia Police Department received a report on June 30 from a woman who said an adult male sent inappropriate messages via social media to her 15-year-old daughter.
Police began to investigate and came to believe the social media account was registered under a fake name.
The messages sent to the girl reportedly included a nude photo of a male and references to sexual acts, according to court documents.
Police tracked the internet provider address associated with the messages and traced them to Duncan, a neighbor of the teen girl. They found him with a computer that reportedly contained the same pictures he sent to the teen.
Duncan reportedly told police he created the profile under the fake name because he wanted to “send messages to random girls,” according to court documents, which don’t specify whether those messages had similar content.
He also reportedly admitted to making other accounts under different names in which he did the same thing after too many people blocked the first account.
He reportedly admitted sending “d-ck pics” to the girl and said he thought she was older.
