Big Bear girl was target of Riverside predator

BIG BEAR – A 20-year-old man accused of luring a 16-year-old girl to meet him for sex was arrested on Thursday morning. Robert Louis Becker, who lives on the 5000 block of Quail Run in Riverside, was arrested on charges of possession of child pornography among other crimes, ending a stretch of over two months during which the man stalked the teen through the internet. Big Bear, located in the San Bernardino mountains, is about 90 minutes from Riverside.

The girl, who lives in the Big Bear community of Sugarloaf, was asked by the suspect to provide nude photos of herself, according to police reports from an investigation that began on July 8. The girl’s mother had told police her daughter had been solicited into a relationship.

A relationship had started two months earlier, said police, involving a man using the name “Lex Adams”. In his internet profile, it was determined that Becker was using a generic photo of a male model.

The unidentified victim meanwhile, had been seduced into sending the man sexually explicit photos of herself, and was eventually persuaded to meet the man for sex, according to reports. Becker also convinced the teen to divulge her social media account information. Police said he was able to use the victim’s account information to pose on-line as the teen, sending requests to her friends for additional sexually explicit videos and photos.

Upon being served with a search warrant at his Riverside residence, Becker was found to be in possession of child pornography, said police.

Becker is scheduled for arraignment on Monday in San Bernardino Superior Court, facing charges of possession of child pornography and trying to entice a minor into sex acts. He is being held currently on $250,000.
