Bryan E. Woldman, 35, of the 7000 block of Clearwater Drive in Plainfield, allegedly engaged in illicit conversations with a 12-year-old girl via Facebook, cell phone, text and Skype, according to police. 

Naperville Police High Technology Crimes Unit began an investigation Dec. 21 after the girl's mother discovered her daughter was allegedly in communication with Woldman, police said.

Over the course of several weeks Woldman "exchanged sexually explicit text messages with what he thought was the 12-year-old female," according to a police release.

Police said Woldman then traveled from his home in unincorporated Plainfield to AMC Naperville 16 Showplace Theaters in south Naperville to meet with the girl for sex on Friday, Feb. 8 around 7:47 p.m.

Once Woldman arrived to the theater he was taken into custody by Naperville Police detectives and charged with indecent solicitation of a minor, traveling to meet a minor for a sexual encounter and grooming, according to police reports.

He was transferred to Will County Jail and his bond was set at $1 million.

Police said if anyone has information regarding similar activities involving Woldman, contact the Naperville Police Department High Technology Crimes Unit.

Surely if this guy can find a 12 year old to solicit to, YOU can find a way to contact the police. If you are a minor ask your parents or go to the resource officer at your school (aka the guy with the gun). All the information at our fingertips and some still don;t get it. Sheesh.
