CONWAY (KATV) - Conway police arrested an Illinois trucker in Searcy Monday evening for reportedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old Conway girl in September.

The girl's parents filed a report with police in early September claiming 25-year-old Michael Stiller of Palatine, Ill., traveled to Conway to have a sexual encounter with her. The girl told police she met Stiller on a singles hotline and he knew she was 14 years old.

An officer posed as a teenager and started talking with Stiller. That detective said messages from Stiller became explicit at times.

Investigators, with the help of Searcy police, the White County Sheriff's Office, a Searcy business and Stiller's employer, arranged for Stiller to transport a load to Searcy. Officers arrested him without incident.

At last check, Stiller was still in the Faulkner County Detention Center and was ordered to have no contact with the girl.
