Male Nurse Busted Dateline-Style Trying to Have Sex With Kid

It may come as a shock to some, but for the most part, underage children are not hanging out in seedy Internet chat rooms looking for sex with dirty old men. Cops posing as children looking to bust perverts, however, often are. Inexplicably, the aforementioned perverts will often take the bait.

Enter 39-year-old Richard Sangalang, a Surprise perv who doubles as nurse at Banner Hospital.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, Sangalang was arrested Friday afternoon as he attempted to meet a person he believed to be a 15-year-old girl for sex. Too bad for him, there was no 15-year-old girl. There were, however, cops, who took him into custody.

Police say they started monitoring Sangalang on February 22, when he contacted a person he believed to be a 15-year-old girl asking for sex.

He told the "girl" he wanted to engage in two-way oral sex with her. He then said he wanted to have sex with the girl.

Sangalang identified himself as an adult, and even sent the "girl" photos of himself and his car.

Sangalang contacted the "girl" on three separate occasions throughout the week, and continuously tried to arrange meetings for sex.

Following his arrest, Sangalang copped to trying to lure a child for sex, and acknowledged sending the photos.

He's been booked on three counts of trying to lure a minor for sexual exploitation.
