Nebraska parents are being warned about the dangers lurking on the Internet after a McCook man was arrested and charged with exchanging cigarettes for sex with two teen-age girls.
31-year-old Adam Brunswick turned himself in to Lincoln police. He is accused of luring the two 15-year-old Lincoln girls to a park in Lincoln for sex.
Lincoln police spokeswoman Katie Flood says Brunswick first met the two on the Internet, corresponding with them through various social media.
“Last summer, they agreed to meet him in a Lincoln park,” Flood tells reporters. “They ultimately performed sex acts on Mr. Brunswick in exchange for cigarettes.”
Police received a call from the mother of one of the girls who said her daughter had confessed to her about the meeting.
Flood says the crime should serve as a warning.
“I encourage all parents to have discussions with your children about the dangers of meeting strangers online and basic Internet safety,” Flood says. “These talks can be uncomfortable, but I guarantee they’re far less uncomfortable than the talks you’ll have after a crime like this is committed.”
Brunswick is charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault and electronic child enticement.
