ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - St. Louis County Police think there are children who were abused all the way back to the mid-1990s associated with a man in jail now for trying to lure a 5-year-old into sex acts.

Police arrested Raymond Nugen, 39, at a Super 8 Motel and charged him with one count of Enticement or Attempted Enticement of a Child. He was under the impression he was meeting the child and her mother at the hotel, but the mother was a police detective.

Police say while waiting for the room to be ready, Nugen told the detective what sexual acts he wanted to do to the child. In addition to going to the hotel, Nugen also brought candy that he believed the child would like, police say.

Nugen is being held on a $200,000 bond.

As detectives from the St. Louis County Police Department’s Child Abuse Unit have furthered the investigation, it is now believed that additional victims of unreported crimes involving Nugen exist as far back as the mid-1990s. It is believed that children, under the age of seven, were potentially victimized. If you have any information or believe that you or a loved one was victimized, please contact the Child Abuse Unit at (314) 615-5400
