A man from Austintown, Ohio was arrested on Tuesday after he allegedly brought chicken alfredo in a Tupperware container, two bottles of Sprite and lubricant to meet a 15-year-old boy that he was trying to have sex with. Or, at least he thought it was a 15-year-old boy, It was actually an undercover cop.
Albert Maruna, 22, started chatting with the cop through a dating app. According to police, the Youngstown State University student sent naked photographs of himself to the cop, believing he was a teenager.
According to a police report, the undercover officer told Maruna that he was just 15. Maruna’s response? He said he “didn’t believe in age,” WKBN reports. He also reportedly told the cop that he would like to be his husband in the future.
Maruna allegedly ignited sexually graphic conversations with the undercover cop, according to WOIO.Then, the two set up a time to meet, and Maruna allegedly had hoped to turn those talks into reality.
In addition to the refreshments, Maruna also had a bottle of Astroglide lubrication and Vaseline lotion and him when he was arrested.
Now, he’s facing multiple charges including attempted unlawful sexual contact with a minor and possessing “criminal tools.”
Maruna is being held in the Mahoning County Jail and it is unclear if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this point. Police claimed that during questioning, Maruna didn’t seem to think what he did was wrong.
