PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - A local media specialist was arrested over the weekend after allegedly asking young girls to try on socks he'd bought for them and run around in a public park.Robert Van Wagner was taken to the St. Lucie County Jail on Saturday afternoon after being arrested near Sportsmans Park in Port St. Lucie.  A total of three girls ages 12 and 13 told police that Van Wagner drove past them several times in his pickup truck, then approached them at the park and asked them to try on socks he'd bought for them. A police affidavit also said the girls told police Van Wagner then asked them to run around while wearing the socks. Van Wagner, 33, told the girls "it was for a school project and he really needed them to do this for them," according to the police report. The man left after the girls refused, and when an officer arrived, they pointed out Van Wagner's car, prompting the suspect to drive off. Another officer tracked him down near the intersection of Northwest Curtis Street and Northwest Prima Vista Boulevard. When the officer questioned Van Wagner about the unusual request he made of the young girls, "he stated it was his 'fetish,'" the police report said. He also said he "can't control the urges," according to the report. Police are trying to figure out if Van Wagner, who works at Jensen Beach High School, was involved in a similar incident that was reported last week

what a weirdo! Im glad those girls had sense enough to not only refuse his bizarre requests but to also report him! Who knows what that crazy man could want girls to do next if he cant control his urges. Hes definitely a pedophile targeting young girls and he should be locked up.
