Salem Man Arrested In Redmond After Online Sting

REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Police arrested a 50-year-old Salem man Tuesday, after investigators say he tried to arrange a sexual encounter with a 15-year-old girl.

On Monday, October 23, Daniel Holman Jr allegedly reached out to the girl - who was actually an undercover RPD detective - and engaged in what authorities say was a sexually explicit conversation. He acknowledged the girl was 15 and made arrangements to travel to Redmond to "engage in sexual conduct," according to police. 

The following day, he told the girl online he was in the area of 31st and Highland. Officers took him into custody, with help from the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team (CERT). He’s charged with Online Sexual Corruption of a Child and Luring A Minor.

If you suspect a child of being a victim of abuse, you can make a report to the Oregon Child Abuse Hotline by calling 1-855-503-SAFE (7233); 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You may also report child abuse or neglect to local police by calling Deschutes County Dispatch at 541-693-6911 for non-emergency situations, and 911 if it is an emergency.
