(TULSA, Okla.) Between January 4 and February 2, the Cyber Crimes Unit conducted an undercover investigation into the online exploitation of children. The suspect began chatting with an undercover Tulsa Police Detective who he believed was a 14-year-old female. The suspect sent numerous images of his erect penis to her while also engaging in explicit sexual conversation. He further asked the female to take and send him nude images of herself. On at least one occasion, the suspect attempted to set up a meeting with the 14-year-old by asking her to wait for him after dark in the parking lot of a church near where he believed she lived. The meeting was supposed to occur after he completed his shift as a childcare worker at another Tulsa church. The suspect ultimately cancelled his stated plans. After the Cyber Crimes Unit identified the suspect and learned of his employment involving childcare, the Cyber Crimes Unit moved quickly to conclude the investigation and confront the suspect. On Saturday, the Tulsa Police Cyber Crimes Unit executed a search warrant at the suspect's residence near 61st and Memorial. Christopher Hosselkus, a 29-year-old adult male, was arrested for 5 Counts of Lewd Proposal to a Minor Under 16 years old and booked into the Tulsa County Jail.
