A 41-year-old Texas man is in jail after being accused of trying to get a 14-year-old girl to have sex with him.

The teen girl told cops she was walking home from school when Jonathon Tenorio started walking behind her. He whistled at her twice to get her attention.

She said she began walking faster to try and get away from him, but that he then started jogging and caught up with her.

She says he told her he just wanted to have sex with her and she told him that she was only 14 years old.

She says that’s when she and Tenorio spotted an officer driving towards them. Tenorio then walked back to the other side of the street.

The girl, now crying, flagged down the officer.

Investigators say Tenorio at first denied that he asked the girl for sex, but when later asked if he was sorry for asking her to have sex with him, he said that he was.

He’s been charged with criminal solicitation of a minor.
