LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Arrest affidavits released Wednesday detail allegations of a Lufkin man's raunchy texting, taking photos of and having sex with a 13-year-old boy.

Lufkin Police arrested David Forrester, 39, Monday night following an investigation into a missing child.

According to arrest affidavits, police began investigating the missing child, who is 13. The mother told police she found sexually explicit text messages on the child's iPod, leading her to believe he was with another man.

While the officer was at the residence, the boy was returned by Forrester. The officer contacted Forrester and arrested him on a charge of online solicitation of a minor.

The officer took Forrester to the station, where he admitted to performing sexual acts with the child on three different occasions.

Forrester explained that he met the child on an online app called Grinder, which is a gay social media app, only allowed for adults. According to the affidavit, the child's profile said he was 18, but Forrester should have easily known he was younger than 17.

At the station, Forrester gave consent for his cellphone to be searched and the officer found two nude photos of the child, according to the affidavit.

Forrester is charged with first-degree aggravated sexual assault of a child, second-degree online solicitation of a minor and third-degree possession of child pornography.

He is being held in the Angelina County Jail on a collective bond of $77,500.
