LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock man is behind bars after admitting he had a sexually explicit relationship through text messages with an 11-year-old girl.

On Friday, FBI agents arrested 24-year-old Njeazeh Roderigue Ambeabet at his home in central Lubbock for using text messages to persuade and entice the young girl to send him sexually explicit pictures of herself.

The sexting relationship was discovered when the girls mother looked through her daughter's phone. She immediately went to the Lubbock Police Department to report the messages.

The affidavit does not say how Ambeabet knew the girl but phone records show they had been texting from October 7th to December 3rd of last year. The documents reveal that Ambeabet knew the girl was only 11-years-old and that he had asked her to send pictures of her pubic area to him.

The records contain sexually explicit photos that were texted back and forth between the two. The documents also state that Ambeabet tried to encourage the child to meet with him to have sexual intercourse, and that he told her he wanted to be her first sexual partner.

The affidavit also states that Ambeabet went to a restaurant where he knew the girl was having dinner with her mother, and the two met briefly.

Ambeabet says he is currently employed at the Lubbock State School, now known as the Lubbock State Supported Living Center. He also told FBI agents he previously worked at a middle school in California.

The State Living Center confirmed Ambeabet is a current employee, and he has worked there since October of 2011 as a direct support professional. A statement released by the Center states Ambeabet has never been named or confirmed in any physical abuse allegations while working there. It also states a criminal background check is run annually, and his have always come back clean.

The Center also says that because of the nature of his arrest, the facility can take action against Ambeabet such as placing him in a different position that does not have contact with residents or placing him leave.

Prosecutors have filed a motion requesting the judge not set a bond for Ambeabet, stating his crime is a felony against a minor and he is a serious flight risk. The judge has set a preliminary hearing for Wednesday afternoon to discuss the motion.
