A 25-year-old man is accused of trying to meet up with a 12-year-old to have sex, but the person he actually set up a meeting with was a police officer.

Thomas Horn was arrested on Thursday. APD detectives were conducting an undercover online investigation when they said Horn asked the person online, who he believed to be a 12-year-old girl, to meet up for sex.

When Horn arrived to the meeting spot, police took him into custody.

According to the criminal complaint, Horn told police he thought the person was "joking" about being so young.

Thomas Horn, 25.
