BRADENTON -- A Broward County man was arrested at the home of a 14-year-old girl after he e-mailed her a nude picture of himself and came to have sex with her, police said.
David C. Budina, 34, drove from Davie to Bradenton on Saturday, slipped into the girl's home and knocked on her bedroom door, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
A sheriff's deputy opened the door and arrested him.
Sheriff's spokesman Dave Bristow said Budina had been to Bradenton before and got the 14-year-old's e-mail address from a 16-year-old girl. The younger girl received an e-mail March 1 that included the nude picture, and her parents notified the Sheriff's Office on March 10, Bristow said.
A sheriff's investigator watched as the girl went online Friday and received an instant message from Budina. Budina and the girl arranged to meet for sex, reports said.
