District Attorney Jack Whelan and Captain Scott E. Willoughby, of the Ridley Township Police Department, said last week that Ryan Golankiewicz, 26, of the 600 block of Autumn Rover Run in Philadelphia, faces first degree felony charges including criminal use of a communications facility, attempted statutory sexual assault and solicitation, and attempted involuntary indecent sexual intercourse for attempting to lure who he thought was a 14-year-old girl for sex.
The arrest came at the conclusion of an undercover investigation by the Delaware County Criminal Investigation Division (CID) Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) and Ridley Township Police Department.
On April 18, Ridley officer Leo Doyle and the ICAC Task Force acting undercover and posing as a 14 year-old girl, responded to an internet ad posted on a website soliciting “a high school or college girl that is looking for some fun with an older guy. I have a thing for younger girls. I am good looking professional and muscular.”
On May 2, the conversations turned sexual and the two began communicating through email, discussing ways to meet for sex. Believing he was speaking to a teenager, Golankiewicz wrote they would go to his house where he would provide alcohol to help calm her nerves. He talked about having sex and said he would teach her since she was a virgin. On May 5, Golankiewicz sent a picture of an erect penis, claiming it was his.
Golankiewicz wrote that he works as a chemical engineer for an oil company and that he also went to Villanova University and studied chemical engineering.
On May 18, Golankiewicz arrived at Sonic Restaurant in Ridley Township on MacDade Blvd, to meet who he thought was a 14-year-old.
He was arrested by Doyle and detecives Edmond Pisani and Kenneth Bellis, of the ICAC Unit, and detectives with the Ridley Township Police Department. He was jailed at the Delaware County Prison after failing to post $250,000 cash bail.
