Man stationed at Scott Air Force Base accused of trying to have sex with teen

MASCOUTAH, Ill. (AP) -- A communications officer at Scott Air Force Base in southwestern Illinois is accused of trying to set up sex with a 15-year-old girl as part of a five-year online relationship.

Court documents allege that 32-year-old Felix Tran admits going to Chattanooga, Tenn., to have sex with the girl despite being concerned he was being set up.

Investigators say the girl's mother contacted police after finding a sex toy Tran allegedly sent to her daughter, and an officer posed as the girl online to communicate with Tran.

Tran is charged with enticement and traveling in interstate commerce to engage in sex with a minor.

Tran couldn't be reached for comment; he doesn't have a listed home telephone number, and it's unclear if he has an attorney. Calls to the court clerk in Hamilton County, Tenn., went unanswered Wednesday.
