ASHWAUBENON - A 48-year-old Green Bay man was arrested in an Internet sex sting.

Ashwaubenon Public Safety officials say the man was chatting online with what he thought was a 15-year-old girl. The "girl" was actually Ashwaubenon officers.

The man arranged to meet the "girl" at the Ashwaubenon library for a sexual encounter Wednesday, investigators say, but instead he met undercover officers and was arrested.

Police are asking prosecutors to charge the man with sexual exploitation of a child and using a computer to facilitate a sex crime. He has not yet been formally charged with any crime.
