An alleged child predator tried to pay a 15-year-old Foxborough girl for sex, authorities said.

Peter Campobasso, 31, of Medford, is facing similar charges in Mansfield. In April, he was charged with trying to give cash to a 12-year-old Mansfield girl in exchange for nude photos. He pleaded not guilty in that case.

The Sun Chronicle reported Campobasso, a carnival worker, was charged last month with trying to set up a rendezvous with a 15-year-old girl at the Renaissance Hotel at Patriot Place. The meeting never happened, authorities said.

Police have said Campobasso may have preyed on more underage girls.

"Campobasso is believed to have befriended many young girls in the Mansfield/Attleboro area via Facebook and social media," Mansfield police said in a statement.
