Marcus Lorenzo Thomas Jr., 28, has been charged with solicitation of a minor and possession of heroin and marijuana in East Ridge.
In the incident on Thursday at 1503 McDonald Road, police said they responded to a call on a warrant service and arrested Thomas on an outstanding warrant.
Police found a juvenile in the room. According to the juvenile, Thomas touched her in inappropriate places despite her telling him she was not interested in having sexual relations with the man.
Even after she told him, “Stop, stop,” Thomas continued to solicit her for sexual acts, she said. Thomas then offered the juvenile methamphetamine in exchange for sexual favors. As this was happening, the police knocked on the door, and Thomas ran to the bathroom.
The girl told police she believed she would have been raped if police had not intervened when they did.
Thomas was also found with marijuana in a cigarette box, and 1.5 grams of heroin in his pants.
Thomas was then moved to Hamilton County Jail. The victim was handed over to Child Protective Services.
