A Garden City man has been arrested on allegations of indecent solicitation of a child, criminal sodomy, electronic solicitation and aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Carlos Ricardo Valenzuela-Perez, 20, 408 Buffalo Jones Ave., was arrested at 7:40 a.m. Thursday and lodged in the Finney County Jail.

According to Garden City police Sgt. Michael Reagle, an officer made contact with Valenzuela-Perez and a 14-year-old Garden City girl on the south side of Finnup Park at about 7:28 a.m. Thursday.

According to Reagle, "They were both inside of a parked vehicle. Both of the individuals were acting suspiciously, and due to their age difference, the officer investigated the matter further."

During the course of the officer's investigation, he learned Valenzuela-Perez and the 14-year-old girl were in a relationship and allegedly have had consensual sex on multiple occasions.
