Lubbock Police arrested a registered sex offender after being accused of approaching a mother and offering to pay her for sex with her daughter.

The man allegedly approached the 14-year-old girl outside the gas station on Parkway Drive, as the girl was standing at the pump while her mother went into the 7-Eleven to pay.

While inside, police said that 53-year-old Ricky James Overhulser, approached the girl and asked her to get into his car.

When she refused, the man pulled a wad of cash and offered it to the girl if she agreed to get into his car. However, the frightened teen ran to her mother.

Overhulser drove off, but he returned a short time later while the mother finished pumping gas.

The sex offender allegedly stopped near the pump and asked the mother: “How much for your daughter,” while waving the wad of cash.

The mother shouted at the man and told him that her daughter was only 14 years old. She then took his license plate number as he drove off.

The mother and daughter were able to identify Overhulser as the man who approached them, and he was arrested.

According to court records, his last victim was 16 years old.
