A doctor from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Stanford was arrested for allegedly dating a minor for sex, according to Redwood City Police Department.
Dr. Dylan O’Connor, 33, was arrested at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, February 5, at 7:00 p.m. in the El Camino Real block in Redwood City for allegedly sending harmful material to a teenager and traveling to help a minor to meet for lewd reasons. Both are crimes.
Redwood City Police received a cyber tip from the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) division of the San Jose Police Department, which oversees illegal electronic image sharing and children’s activities. The tip was related to a possible sex crime against a girl in Redwood City, police said.
The Redwood City Police Department’s Street Crimes Suppression Team conducted a lengthy investigation that included monitoring electronic media communications and analyzing personal pornographic photos allegedly sent by O’Connor. The investigation found that a man was trying to lure a girl to a certain place for sexual activity. When he arrived at the agreed location, police arrested him without incident, according to a press release.
A search warrant was issued in O’Connor’s home following his arrest. Police seized electronic equipment as part of the investigation and are attempting to identify other victims with the assistance of the San Jose Police Department ICAC, the Hillsborough Police Department Investigative Office and the San Mateo District Attorney’s Inspectorate Unit.
