CAROL STREAM, Ill. -- A radio disc jockey has been charged with indecent solicitation of a child after police said he tried to set up a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old boy.
Michael D. Wawrzyniak, 23, of Chicago, is being held on $150,000 bond in the DuPage County Jail, according to Carol Stream Deputy Police Chief Kevin Orr.
Orr said Wawrzyniak, also known as Radio Boy on KISS-FM (103.5 FM), was charged after an online sting operation involving police detectives posing as the boy caught him soliciting sex from the child and setting up a meeting place.
The ChicagoSuburbanNews.com Web site reported Wednesday that Wawrzyniak was taken into custody when he arrived at the meeting place on Friday. Police would not say where the meeting took place, only that it was along a street in a residential area of Carol Stream.
The investigation centered solely on Wawrzyniak, as police don't normally conduct online investigations posing as children, Orr said.
He said this case proves the importance of parents paying close attention to children's online activities.
"Hopefully, this investigation has prevented a child from becoming the victim of a heinous act in the future," the Web site quotes Orr as saying.
