Timothy Rodenius, 31, of Ontario, Calif., is accused of engaging in bondage sex acts — which he allegedly videotaped — with a 17-year-old Pennsylvania girl he met online. Police say Rodenius wooed the teenager, first telling her he was 19, then upped his age to 22.  According to a criminal complaint, Rodenius was aware that the girl, identified only as KF, was under 18.  The alleged acts took place at a Quality Inn in West Kittanning, Penn., on Monday and Tuesday. Her parents reported her missing Tuesday, and police found her in the hotel room later that night.

While in the hotel room on a child sexual abuse search warrant, Pennsylvania state police say they found lingerie, a video camera and tripod, handcuffs and restraints. According to the criminal complaint, Rodenius used a stun gun on the girl at one point. Police say Rodenius admitted to recording sex acts with the girl. He is charged with two felony counts of child pornography and two misdemeanor counts of corruption of minors. His first court appearance is scheduled for August 15, in the meantime he is being held on $100,000 bond.
