ST. LOUIS - A Hazelwood man is charged with child enticement.
St. Louis County Police arrested and charged 39-year-old Raymond Nugen for allegedly attempting to engage in sexual acts with a five-year-old.
Investigators say that Nugen made contact with a woman online thinking that she was the mother of a five-year-old; that person was actually an undercover detective.
Nugen then inquired about bringing the child to a motel room for sex and went as far as even reserving that hotel room and bringing candy for the child.
St. Louis County Police set up a sting operation at the Super 8 on St. Charles Rock Road and arrested Nugen when he arrived.
Nugen admitted to police that there were several other victims.
Investigators believe some of the assaults date back to the mid-1990s. Many of the victims could be adults now.
Police are encouraging you or anyone you may know who may be a victim to call the St. Louis County Police Department at (314) 355-1200.
