GREEN, Ohio — A Parma man is accused of having sex with a 13-year-old girl he met on an online dating site.

Raleigh Abraham, 23, is charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a third-degree felony, in Barberton Municipal Court. More charges are pending, Summit County Sheriff's deputies said.

He is scheduled for an initial court appearance at 1 p.m. on Thursday.

The girl's mother reported the girl missing about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday. About an hour later, sheriff's deputies saw the girl getting out of a car in Green.

Deputies tried to pull Abraham's car over, but he initially didn't stop and made several quick turns to elude deputies. He eventually pulled over and deputies questioned him. 

Investigators found Abraham met the girl on an online dating site and set up a meeting with her in Green.

Abraham and the girl then "engaged in sexual conduct," deputies said. Deputies and Parma police officers raided Abraham's home in Parma and seized computers, which investigators will analyze.

They also found stolen street signs and drug paraphernalia inside his home, deputies said.
