A public elementary school teacher who was arrested April 1 for attempting to solicit a two-year-old child allegedly offered $200 so he could molest the child, numerous sources reported.
Xavier Alexander, 27, is reportedly facing felony charges of soliciting sex with a minor and traveling to meet a minor for sex. He was a fourth-grade teacher at Grove Park Elementary School in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, before being fired after police reports showed Alexander allegedly paid to sexually molest the two-year-old child, the Associated Press (AP) reported Tuesday.
A police report showed that a 39-year-old father posted a Craigslist ad on March 26 in search of someone to split a motel room with him, according to the AP. The man reportedly mentioned he had a two-year-old daughter, and requested that no “weirdos” or drug users inquire about the offer.
An unknown phone number reportedly began messaging the father, and asked: “Would I ever be alone with your daughter?” The father told the man he wouldn’t be, and the man said he would look elsewhere.

The father contacted the police after the exchange, and police began impersonating the father in messages to the unknown phone number. They told the messenger that he could be alone with the child if he paid for two nights at the motel, which would cost $200, the AP reported.
