A 20-year-old man was arrested Thursday for allegedly harassing a 10-year-old girl at a Des Moines park.
Police arrested Edward Lincoln after the girl told officers she was walking through Turner Park when Lincoln approached her and said he wanted to have sex with her but she was too young.
Police say Lincoln then followed the girl as she walked away, but never touched her.
The victim also told police she had seen Lincoln hanging around Turner Park and Madison Elementary School before and after class.
Lincoln is in the Polk County Jail, charged with 3rd degree harassment.
