WOODLAND PARK, Colorado (KRDO) – Woodland Park police say they arrested a 42-year-old man on suspicion of multiple child sex crimes after a nonprofit called Colorado Ped Patrol carried out a stab last weekend.
WPPD said in a statement Thursday that officials received a call from a person on the Colorado Ped Patrol who said she was posing on the internet as a 13-year-old and receiving “explicit text messages and pictures” from Elliott.
According to the WPPD, Colorado Ped Patrol confronted Elliott with a camera crew at a Starbucks in Woodland Park, and the event was streamed live on YouTube. The video does not appear to be on the Colorado Ped Patrol channel at the time of publication.
WPPD said Elliott was arrested on a pending arrest warrant, but police added that detectives checked “hundreds of pages of text messages” leading to three crime charges.
Elliott has been detained on suspicion of sexual exploitation of a child, Internet loosening of a child, and sexual exploitation of a child on the Internet. He is being held with no bond.
