BEND, OR -- A 35-year-old Redmond man was arrested in Bend, when he showed up to meet who he thought was a 15-year-old with whom he’d exchanged inappropriate text messages. 

 

Redmond Police found out about the messages, last week. Officers posed as the teen and texted Matthew Smith, who reportedly tried to exchange nude photos with the victim. 

 

Investigators say Smith wanted to meet up with the teen for the purposes of sexual contact. When he arrived at Sawyer park at the agreed upon time, Friday afternoon, he was arrested without incident.
 
Anyone with information about this case or similar incidents involving Smith is asked to call Redmond PD Investigations Unit at 541-504-3400. They remind parents to be aware of phone or text messages received on their child's phone from adults. Police urge parents who notice suspicious phone calls or text requests to contact local law enforcement.
