Police say man had sex with girl he met online
A Pennsylvania man met a Punta Gorda teenager through a encounter and then traveled here to have sex with her, authorities say.
The two chatted daily for about four months in an Internet chat room on the social networking site before Tyler Phillips Stancker, 19, traveled by airplane to Southwest Florida to have sex with the 14-year-old girl, authorities say.
The victim told authorities that she knew Stancker was 19 and he was aware that she was 14. She told detectives that she and Stancker had planned their meeting. She provided investigators with details of their activity over a weeklong period.
"Parents need to monitor what their children are doing on the Internet," said Lt. Donna Ogden of the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office. "It is definitely a danger and kids need to be cautious of what information they put out there and reveal about themselves."
