Pennsylvania Man Heads to New Jersey Hotel for Sex With 11-Year-Old: Prosecutors

Ocean County Prosecutors say a Pittsburgh man traveled to New Jersey to have sex at a hotel with an 11-year-old girl.

Authorities say the girl had met 35-year-old Robert Clayton through social media.

Prosecutors say Clayton drove to New Jersey and picked the girl up at her home on May 1.

The girl was unable to identify the hotel. But she was able to provide details about the suspect's appearance, his vehicle and his social media accounts.

Police located Clayton's vehicle and he was charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, luring and child endangerment.

Clayton is held on $375,000 bail. It's not known if he has a lawyer who can comment on the charges.
