Online court records don't list an attorney for Timothy Rodenius, of Ontario, Calif. He was arrested late Wednesday by state troopers from the Kittanning barracks.

Police say Rodenius at first told the girl he was in his teens and later that he was 23 after they met online and began exchanging messages and Skype communications two years ago.

The girl's family reported her missing after he picked her up at her parents' house. Police say they found more than 150 bondage-related sex aids and also video images of Rodenius performing sex acts on the girl in a West Kittanning hotel room.

He faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 15.
