BEND, OR -- Bend Police arrested a 34-year-old man, last week, for luring a girl through social media. According to investigators, Roger Vanwormer sent sexually explicit messages to the 15-year-old Bend victim.

 

The suspect initially tried to run from officers who showed up to search his Linnea Drive apartment, Wednesday afternoon. He was arrested after a police K9 found him hiding under a neighboring deck.

 

He’s charged with luring, escape, interfering with a police officer and a felony probation violation. 

 

Bend Police reminds parents to monitor their children's social media accounts and have conversations regarding dangers "that are inherent with youth using social media." In this case, they say the girl was open with her parents and started the conversation early, after receiving the disturbing information.
