A 52-year old man was arrested for allegedly soliciting a 13-year old boy at the Bahia Hotel.
The man approached the boy three times inside a bathroom and tried to lure him into the lobby Saturday night, San Diego police said.
The boy refused and told his parents.
Then by chance, the family spotted the man yesterday in Pacific Beach. Police were called and the man was arrested.
Police have not yet released the man's name, but say he was a registered guest at the Mission Bay hotel.
