A Medina man is under arrest after authorities say he attempted to enter Highland High School on Tuesday afternoon to seek out a female student he met over the Internet.

Medina County Sheriff Tom Miller said a man walked into the high school at 1:07 p.m. and asked for a visitors pass. He was told the school does not issue such passes, and he left.

Miller said that a short time later the same man was observed on school security cameras attempting to “enter the school at the lower-level entrances.”

School officials sounded the alarm, put the school in lockdown and called police.

Miller said deputies arrived at the school at 1:13 p.m. and found the man in his vehicle in the parking lot.

Justin M. Dixon, 24, of Medina, was taken into custody and charged with criminal trespassing.

Miller said Dixon told investigators that “he was at the school to see a girl he had befriended on the Internet.”

Dixon is being held in the Medina County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
