A Baltimore man was charged yesterday with traveling to New Mexico to have sexual relations with a 13-year-old girl he met over the Internet, according to the FBI.

Carl My-Xuan Weigel, 25, was arrested in front of his home in the 200 block of Chancery Road yesterday after he allegedly flew to Albuquerque to meet the girl Sept. 11 and had sexual relations with her over a three-day period, the FBI said.

The two met by communicating over the Internet and by phone for an undisclosed period of time, agents said.

Weigel was being held last night at the Wilkens Avenue precinct of the Baltimore County police.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Baltimore, said special agent David R. Knowlton.

The arrest was the fourth in the Baltimore-Washington area since Aug. 4 involving men allegely traveling out of state to engage in sexual acts with minors, Knowlton said.

He said the cases emphasize the need for parents to supervise their children's use of the Internet.
