By The Mercury

A Manhattan man was arrested on Monday by Riley County police after weeks of investigation regarding a complaint filed in November.

Harold Heilman, 36, 2500 Farm Bureau Road, Lot 328, was arrested for sexual exploitation of a child and electronic solicitation. He is confined in the Riley County Jail on a $50,000 bond.

According to an RCPD report, police found that the crimes stemmed from an online relationship between Heilman and a 14-year-old girl who lives out-of-state. The relationship allegedly involved sexual conversation and the solicitation of photographs of the girl.
