Annada man arrested for sex enticement
Patrick Joseph Nohren
An Annada man has been arrested and placed in the Pike County Jail for allegedly trying to entice two 14-year-old Louisiana teens into his vehicle for sex.
Patrick Joseph Nohren, 27, was arrested Friday, July 26 after a Louisiana police investigation. He remained in the county jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond as the Press-Journal went to press.
Nohren was arrested on a warrant issued by Pike County Circuit Court Judge Chris Kunza Mennemeyer. He is charged with two felony counts of attempted sexual enticement of a child under 15, according to online court records.
The case came to light when a Louisiana teen reported Thursday, July 25 that Nohren allegedly drove by her home slowly and asked her to get into his car, according to a probable cause statement from Louisiana police. The teen then ran inside her home to get away from him.
Just a few hours later, the teen was walking down Georgia Street with a friend, when Nohren allegedly drove up again, the statement said.
At that point, he allegedly made a lewd gesture to the teens referring to a sex act. The teens then ran to the friend’s home, where they called police.
At 2:32 p.m. Nohren was pulled over by Louisiana Police at the corner of Fourth and Tennessee streets and was taken to the Louisiana police Department for questioning.
While there, Nohren allegedly admitted he was “attempting to acquire sexual favors from two girls and didn’t know they were not 18,” according to the police statement.
Court dates are pending for Nohren.
