A Colorado man is accused of using Facebook to exploit a young girl here in Eastern Carolina.
Longmont, Colorado police say they began an investigation into Kyle Damato after a Beaufort County mother said her 12-year-old daughter was being contacted by the 21-year-old man via the social networking site.
Longmont Det. Victoria Bellah then posed as a young girl on Facebook, sending him a friends request on December 19th. Within days police say the man was sending the detective sexually explicit messages. The detective set up a meeting with Damato in Boulder where he was arrested on suspicion of Internet sexual exploitation of a child and two counts of attempted child sexual assault.
