Beaufort Police Arrest Man with Underage Girl

There's a new statistic about teen abductions. Two out five are related to internet activity, and Low Country police may have stopped one before it happened.

Beaufort police officers found Robert Bowman, 20, in a parked car with a 14-year-old girl. They also found alcohol and drugs in the car.

Police say Bowman met the girl on the internet when she was just 13 years old and has stayed in touch with her ever since. 

Bowman is currently in the Beaufort County Detention Center charged with one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, one count of criminal sexual conduct with a minor, and one count of possession of a controlled substance.
