On Monday, agents from the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General’s Child Predator Section received information that the teen from East Deer Township had been chatting with Joshua Munoz, 23, through a teen chat website.

According to the criminal complaint, Munoz and the child met online on May 31 and began private messaging each other and exchanging text messages, which included conversations about discussing meeting each other for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity, including anal intercourse.

Undercover agents posed as the teen online on Monday. They contacted Munoz to arrange a meeting for later the same day. Munoz was taken into custody when he arrived at a prearranged meeting location in Pittsburgh.

He is charged with two counts of unlawful contact with a minor, one count of criminal attempt, one count of criminal attempt indecent assault and one count of criminal use of a communication facility, the Attorney General’s Office said.

Munoz is currently in the Allegheny County Jail awaiting a preliminary arraignment. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m., June 11.

Munoz’ attorney, David Shrager, told a Pittsburgh TV station that Munoz is a dance major at Point Park University in Pittsburgh.
