    Tulsa police have arrested a man after an undercover child predator operation.

    They say Christopher Hosselkus, 29, is a childcare employee at a Tulsa church and is in jail on 5 complaints of lewd proposal to a minor under 16.

    According to police during the month of January, the Tulsa Police Department's Cyber Crimes Unit conducted an investigation into the online exploitation of children.

    During that time, they say Hosselkus began chatting with an undercover officer who he believed was a 14-year-old female.

    Police say Hosselkus sent several indecent photos of himself and engaged in sexually explicit conversation with the officer.

    He also requested the female send him nude photos and arranged for a meeting at a church parking lot near where he thought she lived.

    After the Cyber Crimes Unit identified Hosselkus and learned of his employment involving childcare, they moved quickly to conclude the investigation and arrested him.
