OWASSO, Oklahoma -

An Owasso man was arrested after police say he took lewd photos of a juvenile female who was visiting his home. Kent Wade Norris, 34, was booked into Tulsa County Jail on felony complaints of lewd or indecent proposals/acts to a child and soliciting a minor for indecent photos.

According to the arrest report, a young girl came over to Norris's home to visit his daughter on June 17, 2012.  Norris told the girl his daughter and her mother would be home soon and she was welcome to wait for them, the report states.

Police say Norris asked the girl to pose for photos and attempted to take her pants off.  Officers say the little girl left and told her grandmother what happened.

The child told her grandmother that Norris wanted her to pose under a blanket and to pull the blanket up so it would appear that she was naked. She described the poses and photos he wanted as "weird."

The child's mother learned about the incident on June 19th and called police.

When officers interviewed Norris, they say he at first denied the charges, but eventually admitted taking photographs of the little girl and trying to remove her pants. He told police he had deleted the photos.

Police also learned that Norris's daughter and wife were out of state when the visit occurred.

The Owasso resident is being held on a $55,000 bond.
