By Carl Kanefsky 3:05pm, July 22, 2013A Newark man is arrested and charged with attempted rape after trying to lure a 13 year old to a hotel for sex.
An undercover investigation by the Delaware Child Predator Task Force led to the arrest of 59 year old Kirk Simmons.
The Attorney General's office says Simmons had several conversations with a detective posing as the girl's father, and indicated he wanted to meet the girl.
The State Police Special Operation Response Team made the arrest last week when Simmons arrived at the hotel on South College Avenue.
