A Baton Rouge man was arrested Tuesday after investigators said he made sexual advances toward a 12-year-old girl.

Meshack Riley, 40, handed the victim a note Monday offering her $100 if she would expose herself to him, according to an arrest report. “If (you) tell, I will go to jail,” the note said.

Riley told investigators it was his handwriting on the note, but denied giving it to the victim, East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies said.

Riley, 7953 Starwood Court, was booked into Parish Prison on a count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.
