Chesterfield, Va. ( - Chesterfield Police are looking for additional information on a 33-year old man they say bribed an 18-year old girl into filing a false report.  Officers believe Joshua Brady has had additional contact with teenage girls via social media.

Police say Brady bribed the 18-year old into filing a false sexual assault report against a 17-year old, whom Brady knows.  Neither teen has been charged in the case; the alleged bribery was discovered before anything moved forward against the teen boy.

Anyone with information on Brady, who also went by Joshua Weston (and pretended to be British), is asked to call Chesterfield Police.
