Severn man arrested for solitcitating sex from undercover officer

ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY - A Severn man was arrested Sunday after attempting to solicit sex from an undercover Anne Arundel County police officer.

 Last month, an investigator began an online conversation with Nicholas Hittle, 36. 

The investigator was posing online as a 13-year-old girl. During these communications the suspect solicited the investigator for this purpose and suggested they meet for a sexual encounter.

On Aug. 29th, the suspect attempted to meet the “13-year-old” at a location in Anne Arundel County. Once he arrived, he was taken into custody and identified Hittle.

He was arrested and charged with sexual solicitation of a minor. 

Detectives from the Child Abuse Unit participate with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. They have received specialized training to conduct these types of investigations.
