Tipp City, Ohio (AP) -- A 15-year-old girl's mother alarmed by texts from two men helped lead to their arrests.

Police in the Dayton suburb of Tipp City say the men were looking to meet the teen girl for sex.

They say after the mother saw the text messages to her daughter, she contacted police.

Police say they contacted the men, who were arrested last week when they came separately to an address they thought was provided by the girl.

Thirty-five-year-old Marc Burns of Beavercreek, Ohio, and 41-year-old Alonzie Wright Jr. of Dayton have both pleaded not guilty to a count of importuning.

The police say they encourage parents to monitor their children's electronic communications.
