The Fort Smith Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit arrested Robert Juel Schaal on one account of attempted rape of a minor, on Thursday.

Investigators said he was arrested after an undercover officer responded to an online ad that Schaal wanted to engage sexual acts in, with a mother and daughter together. 

After brief communications between the two, it was agreed the undercover officer, who posed as the mother to a young child, would allow Schaal to meet with them.

Police said Schaal was arrested after meeting with the undercover officer and is being held in the Sebastian County Center, without bond.
