A registered sex offender is behind bars after police said he tried to solicit sex.

Cecil Ellsworth was arrested Thursday after multiple complaints from neighbors in a Sheffield neighborhood. An investigation began, and officers discovered he approached a woman twice and offered her money for sex.

Ellsworth was convicted in California on two counts of unlawful sex with a minor in 1979.

Ellsworth was arrested and charged with soliciting prostitution. His bond was set at $1000.
