A 35-year-old man who is HIV positive is charged with luring a 12-year-old Allen Park girl via Snapchat and raping her, Fox 2 reports.

Anthony Hodges, 35, of Pontiac, was arrested in August and arraigned this week on accusations that he communicated with a young girl and located her home through Snapchat's GPS function. He's held in the Oakland County Jail without bond. 

He faces charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, second-degree criminal sexual conduct, HIV-unknowingly engaging in intercourse with intent to inflict uninformed partner and being a habitual offender (second notice). 

The girl was picked up in August by Dearborn Police as she was walking to meet Hodges, Fox 2's Jessica Dupnack reports. They reportedly planned to run off together. Police don't believe the girl is infected. 

Authorities say the two met on Snapchat when she was 11 and talked for weeks. 

"We very well believe that there are other victims out there. He's had other allegations against him in the past and I would find it hard to believe there aren't other victims out there," Detective James Thorburn of Allen Park tells the station.
