Middlesex County officials announced today that Kenneth Amy, 55, of Browns Mills, has been arrested while attempting to lure a 13-year-old girl.
According to county officials, on the evening of April 4, Amy arrived at a pre-arranged location after responding to an online listing for the purpose of engaging in explicit contact with an individual who he believed to be a 13-year-old girl.
As a result of an investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit of The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, Amy believed he was chatting with a juvenile when he was, in fact, communicating with law enforcement.
According to officials, Amy was arrested without incident and charged with luring/enticing a minor by various means and attempted explicit assault.
The investigation is active and continuing.
