PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – A Norfolk man is accused of trying to solicit a juvenile for sex who he met through a dating app.

Portsmouth Police arrested 50-year-old Robert Clark on June 22, the same day he reportedly showed up at the juvenile’s home. The child’s family immediately called law enforcement.
