If the world can come together to help find the Boston marathon bomber, then it can come together and find a nasty child rapist.
Homeland Security Investigations is looking for a guy who's made videos of himself sexually exploiting a 7- to 9-year-old girl. From videos shared online, the agency managed to isolate shots of the man and is asking for the public's help in identifying him. From these pictures, you can see the man is balding and mustachioed, in a messy room with guitars and amplifiers.
A warrant is out for his arrest. Regarding his location, the agency said only that he is believed to be in the United States.
Anyone with information should call 1-866-347-2423 from the U.S. & Canada or 1-802-872-6199 from anywhere in the world, or fill out a tip form at www.ICE.gov/tips.
The agency stresses that individuals should not attempt to apprehend the suspect personally.
From its statement:
HSI's Victim Identification Program seeks to rescue child victims of sexual abuse and exploitation and bring the perpetrators to justice.
This investigation is part of Operation Predator, a nationwide HSI initiative to protect children from sexual predators, including those who travel overseas for sex with minors, Internet child pornographers, criminal alien sex offenders and child sex traffickers. HSI encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free hotline at 1-866-347-2423 or by completing its online tip form. Both are staffed around the clock by investigators.
Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, via its toll-free 24-hour hotline, 1-800-843-5678.
