By Scott Sutton
COOKEVILLE, Tenn (WSMV) — A 42-year-old Tennessee man got a bloody nose when he tried to meet a 12-year-old girl that he met on Facebook.
The child’s father said his daughter started receiving messages from a man she didn’t know, so he set up his own sting operation.
When the 42-year-old man arrived at Cane Creek Park, the girl’s dad called police and punched the man in the face.
The Monterey, TN man told police he deserved to be punched but said he just wanted to befriend the girl.
Police are still investigating, but no charges have been filed.
