A Delray Beach man is under arrest, accused of trying to have sex with a child.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said it began an investigation into 35-year-old Agustin Gonzalez in early November.

According to his arrest report, Gonzalez started chatting with an undercover officer, who was posing as a 15-year-old girl on the chatting application MeetMe.

Gonzalez tried to initiate sexual contact, even offering to pay money for it, his arrest report said.

The Sheriff's Office said Gonzalez was attempting to seduce, solicit, lure or entice a child or another person believed by the suspect to be a child to engage in unlawful sexual conduct.

Deputies arrested Gonzalez on Wednesday.

Detectives said there could be additional victims, so if you have any information call Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
