  • Albert Maruna Mahoning County Jail

An Ohio college student who believed he was on his way to trade chicken Alfredo and Sprite for sex with a 15-year-old boy was instead arrested by police as part of a sting operation.

The undercover officer began communicating with Maruna after creating a profile on a dating app, reports say. He was found with the aforementioned items, including chicken Alfredo in a Tupperware container.

"Age is a number, I believe", Maruna wrote, according to the newspaper.

A 22-year-old man accused of having sexually explicit conversations and sending nude photographs to a 15-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday afternoon.

According to police, the undercover officer told Maruna on several occasions that he was only 15-years-old. Maruna had reportedly started developing a crush on the "teen" telling the undercover officer, "You are my one and only" and wanted to be his husband.

Austintown police investigators said that the pair agreed to meet for sex on Tuesday, with Maruna promising to bring lubricant, chicken Alfredo and Sprite, Fox 19 said.

The 22-year-old is charged with attempted unlawful sexual contact with a minor, disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, possessing criminal tools, and importuning. Police say Maruna traveled to Austintown thinking he was meeting the boy, but when he got there he was arrested.

He is now being held in the Mahoning County jail.

While being questioned by police, Maruna stood by his position that having sex with a minor was not wrong, according to WKBN. He will face a preliminary hearing on January 3.
