Police: Man tried to buy 10-year-old girl for sex

Yonkers police announced they have arrested a man who tried to pay a mother to have sex with her 10-year-old daughter.

Investigators say that 47-year-old Robert Viggiagno, of Fishkill, tried to pay a woman that he met for the opportunity to have sex with her daughter. The woman turned out to be an undercover police officer and the daughter never existed.

He has now been charged with attempted rape.

Police say that they believe that Viggiagno may have tried this before and they are hopeful any other possible victims will come forward.
