MARTINEZ -- A 25-year-old Walnut Creek man was behind bars Tuesday after he was arrested on suspicion of trying to lure a teenaged girl for sex.

Skye Oleary, of Walnut Creek, faces charges of sending lewd materials to a minor and arranging to meet with a minor for sex after Martinez police became aware of his activities through an online advertisement.

Police began communicating with Oleary online, where he arranged to meet with a female he assumed to be 14 years old for the purpose of having sex. But when he showed up at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Marina Vista Park, officers were there waiting to take him into custody.

A search warrant was served at Oleary's home where police seized computer equipment as evidence, according to a police news release.
