HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

State prosecutors said they arrested a 56-year-old Scranton man after he traveled to the Harrisburg area to have sex with a teenage girl.

Herbert Scott Eaton used an Internet messaging service to contact an undercover agent using the online profile of a 13-year-old girl, according to a news release from Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

He was taken into custody Friday when he tried to meet the teen and her 14-year-old friend, authorities said.

Eaton is also accused of sending the girl a pornographic photo during their first online chat.

He was arraigned on charges of unlawful contact with a minor and criminal use of a communication facility and sent to Dauphin County Prison on $50,000 bail.
