FARGO-- A Fargo man faces a felony charge of luring minors by computer after allegedly sending sexually suggestive text messages to a 15-year-old girl.

A warrant was issued Friday for the arrest of Zacharia Gebro. Gebro was 22 years old when he traded messages with the girl on Sept. 5 and 6, according to documents filed in Cass County District Court.

During an investigation, the girl told Fargo police she exchanged phone numbers with Gebro through Facebook and then they had a conversation via text.

In the texts, Gebro asked for photos and  the girl's age, and she told him she was 15, court documents stated. He also asked if she is a virgin, court documents stated.

Gebro told her he could show her a good time and that he can go for hours, court documents stated.
