A Huron mother reported to police that an out-of-state man sent her daughter "sexually charged messages" while she played an online role-playing game.

The woman's 12-year-old daughter was playing World of Warcraft when the youngster started "acting suspicious, holding her cell phone," according to a police report.

The woman went through her daughter's cell phone text messages and found "sexually provocative" text messages from a person named "Ember," who resides in Wisconsin.

The girl's online chat log also showed "sexually charged messages" exchanged between her daughter and the man, though the mother didn't find any evidence of an actual solicitation, the report stated.

The girl's parents tracked the cell phone number and the woman called the man.

The man claimed during the conversation that he didn't know the girl's age, the report stated.

Police requested a log of the messages, which will be investigated to ascertain if a crime had been committed, the report stated.

 Great to see a mother so in tuned with her daughters body language. Way to go mom. So many parents do not notice things that are going on with their children. I am not a gamer, so one thing I dont understand, the girl was playing a video game , so I am assuming she was playing the game on line and was playing with or against this creep. How could he get access to her personal phone? Was their some sort of "hacking" involved as well?

Maybe the girl gave him her cell number, and why is she playing that game at 12yrs. old anyhow. My 14 yr old son isn't even aloud to play that! Way to go Mom, yes she caught it, but she could have prevented it from even starting in the first place. The internet is a dangerous place! Monitor your kids!

And this surprised the mother? It takes someone really unaware to turn their 12 year old daughter loose on the internet, for anything! The Huron Police should charge the mother with "STUPIDITY" in the first degree!

I can't imagine a kid that young having internet access where the parents are not in the room or better yet a cell phone.  Kids need cell phones when they drive for safety reasons...this whole ideas of kids being given a cell phone as soon as they are able to talk is utterly ridicules.

 I think Mom should have set him up and then when  he came a callin', changed him from a rooster to a hen with one shot!
