ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – A St. Johns County man is behind bars Thursday for lewd and lascivious behavior after police say he had an inappropriate relationship with a 13-year-old girl.

According to deputies, Kameron Krolak, 19, was arrested after the victim's mother called police and told them that her daughter was seeing an older man and she wanted it to stop.

When confronted by deputies Kameron told them he thought the victim was much older, but after finding out how old she really was, continued contacting the minor.

Kameron convinced the young girl to come over to his house early in the morning two separate times and according to deputies, put his hands up the girl's shirt as she told him to stop.

On Thursday Kameron was arrested while in the car with his father and taken to the St. Johns Correctional Facility.
