SARALAND, Ala. (WALA) - Saraland police arrested a local doctor Thursday for allegedly soliciting a child for sex on the internet.
Police said 29-year-old Murali Krishna Reddy solicited sex from a 15-year-old boy.
Saraland Police Sgt. Duncan Herrington said it started on a social networking site.
"(Reddy suggested) inappropriate things that a child shouldn't know much less have been propositioned to do," said Herrington.
Police said it wasn't long before Reddy asked the boy to meet him.
Herrington said it was clear he was going there for sexual purposes.
Police said Reddy went to meet the boy, but instead was met by Saraland police.
According to a statement released by Bob Lowery with USA Hospitals, Reddy was employed there. It said:
"He is a first-year medical resident in training within the USA Health System. He has been placed on administrative leave."
Herrington is glad he is off the street.
"If he's a janitor at the hospital or a doctor, we're extremely glad he's off the street not able to make any other victims," said Herrington.
Reddy is charged with electronic solicitation of a child and traveling to meet a child for an unlawful sex act.
Reddy is supposed to be in court for a bond hearing Friday.
