WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Wichita police arrested a man accused of soliciting sex from three young girls in the Planeview neighborhood.
Damien Henderson, 43, was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on three counts of aggravated criminal solicitation of a child and several warrants stemming from a solicitation of a child case.
At approximately 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, officers were flagged down at the intersection of Yale and Dunham, near 31st Street South and Hillside, by a family member stating three girls, ages 7 to 13, were solicited for sex by Henderson. He fled from the scene before officers arrived.
None of the girls were physically injured. The girls are known to each other.

Officers were given Henderson’s description and a short time later located him near 31st and K-15. He was arrested without incident.
Wichita Public Schools have been notified.
This case will be presented to the District Attorney’s office in the coming weeks.
