According to the Sheriff's Office, Hung Ngoc Nguyen, 46, was taken into custody shortly after 8:30 a.m., in a parking lot located in the 400 block of South King Street in Leesburg.

The suspect arrived at the prearranged location to meet the juvenile but instead was met by members of the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

During the course of an undercover investigation, Nguyen came to the attention of law enforcement after he allegedly contacted an underage juvenile in an Internet chat room and solicited her for sex.

Nguyen was charged with attempting to gain carnal knowledge of a juvenile and attempting to take indecent liberties with a juvenile. Nguyen is currently being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond.
