 Lexington police arrested a man they said tried to meet up with a teenage girl for sex.

 Police said Houston Young, 32, was arrested Tuesday and charged with using an electronic device to induce a minor.

 Police said Young believed he was talking to a 14-year-old but, as it turned out, he was actually talking to the girl's mother.

 According to court documents, the teenager was grounded and could not go on her Facebook account.

 The mother told police Young tried to contact her daughter through Facebook so she posed as the teen.

 According to court documents, Young sent explicit messages, saying he wanted to spend the night with her in a hotel and have sex.

 Court documents said, during an interview, Young admitted to the communications and believed he was talking to the 14-year-old.

 He will be arraigned Wednesday.
