SPOKANE, Wash. -- A Spokane father who discovered his 15-year-old daughter was being wooed on Facebook by a man twice her age took matters into his own hands.

He hatched a Facebook ruse that drew the 30-year-old Federal Way, Wash., man to Spokane earlier this month. Then the father and a couple of his buddies staked out the arranged meeting spot, and blocked the man's escape until police arrived.

The Spokesman-Review reports that the suspect, identified in court documents as Jason D. Richards, faces charges of child rape and attempted kidnapping in Spokane County Superior Court. He is jailed on a $100,000 bond.
