A man who regularly staked young girls who were walking to and from schools is facing years behind bars after asking two sisters to have sex with him, according to police in Maryland.
Silver Spring police said that they have arrested 34-year-old Daniel Dickson after being accused of asking a 15-year-old girl to perform sex acts on him in the back of his van.
In court, Dickson has been found guilty of sexual solicitation of a minor.
Dickson now faces up to 10 years in prison.
He could be ordered to pay a fine of up to $25,000 and will have to register as a sex offender for at least 25 years.
According to the police investigation, Dickson was known in his neighborhood for driving a Mazda MPV van, which contained a full-size mattress.
He also kept in his van a box of condoms and body lotions.
Dickson regularly stalked young girls who were walking to and from school.
One day, Dickson parked his van near the Loiderman Middle School on Goodhill Road.
He approached a 15-year-old girl and her sister and asked them to come into his van to have sex.
The girls told him that they were underage.
The 15-year-old girl then took pictures of the van and his license plate.
The teen called the police and gave officers the pictures.
In another incident, Dickson followed a 17-year-old girl outside the Wheaton High school and asked her to get into his van.
He repeatedly told her “come on in let’s play” and asked for her number.
Police then located Dickson and he was arrested.
