Georgia Man Arrested For Electronic Solicitation Of A Child

On Friday, February 2nd, 2024, the DeKalb County Criminal Investigation Division received report of a 12-year-old female who had been the victim of sexual solicitation through Snapchat by an unknown male offender.  An investigation into the incident to determine the identity of the male was launched with very little initial information to go on.  After over a month of case work and with assistance with ROCIC, the subject was positively identified as Jehad Noman Saloum (21 of Augusta, Ga).

A warrant was issued for Saloum and attempts were made by DeKalb County Investigators as well as Georgia Law enforcement to locate and arrest Saloum.

In May, Saloum was arrested in Hillsborough County (Tampa) Florida and an extradition process began to extradite him to DeKalb County on his warrant.  On Friday, June 7th, Saloum was booked into the DeKalb Conty Detention Center on the charges of Electronic Solicitation of a Child, a Class B Felony.  At the time of this release, Saloum remains in jail with a $ 150,000 bond.
