(KMOV) -- A Cuba, Missouri man faces charges after he allegedly posted an online ad looking for someone to beat and rape his 11-year-old relative while he watched.

According to a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department, an undercover officer made contact with Anthony Brinkman, 32, online and agreed to meet him at a predetermined location.

Police say Brinkman arrived at the location in St. Louis County to pick up who he believed was going to engage in sexual acts with his relative.

Officers were there to take him into custody. His relative was with him when he was arrested.

Brinkman later told investigators he posted the ads and that he “might” be in possession of child pornography.

Police were able to obtain a search warrant for Brinkman's apartment.

The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's Office charged Brinkman with attempted statutory sodomy. He is being held on a $100,000 cash-only bond.

Prosecutors plan to pursue additional charges of sex trafficking of a minor with a grand jury.
