LAYFETTE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - A Lafayette man has been charged with computer aided solicitation of a minor and indecent behavior with juvenile.

Christopher Luke Thibodeaux, 22 was arrested and charged with the St. Landry's Sheriff's Office for allegedly soliciting a minor online and indecent behavior with a juvenile, according to a release from St. Landry's Sheriff's Office.

Captain Megan Vizena said, "We are warning parents to keep an eye on their children's online activity, especially if kids become defensive. Our kids are vulnerable and they are spending a lot of time in the same place as sexual predators-the internet. Statistics show that 78 percent of kids ages 12 to 17 have a cell phone, with half of those devices being a smart phone that can access the internet."

Thibodeaux was bonded out of the St. Landry Parish Jail with a $15,000 bond.

No other details have been released.
