A Blairsville man is facing sex charges involving a 15 year old girl after he allegedly arranged to meet her in the parking lot of the White Township Wal-Mart store yesterday afternoon. State Police say 43 year old Woodrow Hicks used text messages to the girl to entice her to meet him for a sexual encounter. When he arrived at the Wal Mart Parking Lot he met state troopers instead of the girl, he tried to flee and resisted arrest, but was taken into custody. Charges include attempted statutory sexual assault, corruption of a minor, unlawful contact with a minor, resisting arrest, fleeing or attempting to elude police, aggravated assault, and simple assault. He was placed in the Indiana County Jail to await arraignment before District Judge Guy Haberl.
