Bridgeport Police Arrest Morgantown Man Seeking Babysitter with Benefits

Posted: Updated:

The Bridgeport Police Department has arrested a Morgantown man and charged him with soliciting a minor via computer.

Kannan Kesavan, 31, posted an advertisement on a social media site stating that he was looking for a babysitter with benefits and was willing to pay for sexual acts, plus $10 an hour to baby sit. A reply was sent back to Kesavan from what was believed to be a 15-year-old girl from Bridgeport. Kesavan told the girl that he looked up the age of consent, knew that she was underage, and wanted to make sure that she was okay with that, according to a criminal complaint.

Kesavan rented a hotel room in Morgantown on June 27, then traveled to Bridgeport to meet the 15-year-old girl, where he was arrested by the Bridgeport Police Department.
