Sexual predator arrested for attending school event

DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) – Police arrested a sexual predator after they attended a school event at Parsons Elementary School. 

Officers were contacted about the incident at the school, involving Benjamin D. Mattingly, on Feb. 1. Police learned that Mattingly was attending a school event on the night of Jan. 25, without permission from the principal or superintendent’s office. 

According to the principal, they didn’t know Mattingly was a sex offender until the event was over. 

Court records show, Mattingly was convicted of aggravated sexual abuse in 2007. The charges prohibit him from being in a school zone without permission. 

Police interviewed Mattingly on Feb. 1. He told police that he was at the event and he didn’t obtain permission form the school or superintendent’s office.

Sexual predator, posing as cop, arrested

LUDHIANA: A sexual predator — who raped two women in the past one month in the name of moral policing — has been arrested by the police on Sunday. The accused — impersonating as a police official — used to target unmarried couples in Rakh Bagh.

On Friday evening, Balwinder kidnapped a 25-year-old woman from Rakh Bagh, who came to meet her boy-friend. He told them he was deputed at Rakh Bagh for taking action against unmarried couples. He threatened her boy-friend and forced him to leave, after which he took the woman along with

Convicted pedophile arrested for contacting minors online

Convicted pedophile and sex offender Oren Corrido was arrested last week for allegedly chatting with minors online, a violation of his latest prison sentence.

Corrido was arrested on Thursday in a sting operation carried out by the Israel Prisons Service’s Tzur Unit, tasked with monitoring sex offenders after their release from prison.

Tzur investigators found that Corrido was befriending children on social media sites under an assumed name.

The online activity is a violation of Corrido’s parole from prison, where he recently completed a two-year sentence for a variety of pedophilia-related charges.

Oren Corrido and his brother Shlomi have a long history of sexual offenses against children.

In 2009, the brothers were arrested on suspicion of assaulting a 14-year-old boy in Haifa. Charges in that case were eventually dropped due to

Alleged serial rapist arrested after victim fell out of car: cops

LOS ANGELES — A security guard who was arrested after a prostitute fell out of his car is suspected of raping more than a dozen women or girls as young as 15 at gunpoint in Los Angeles County, police said Wednesday.

Ferdinand Ervin Flowers, 35, of Long Beach, pleaded not guilty Wednesday with kidnapping to commit rape, robbery and assault, prosecutors said.

He was being held on more than $1 million bail. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had an attorney.

William Hays, commanding officer of the Los Angeles Police Department Robbery-Homicide Division.

Police say Utah County man arrested for sex abuse a ‘serial child sexual predator’


UTAH COUNTY — A Utah County man was booked into jail Thursday for child sex abuse charges, and police say the man is a “serial child predator” who violated his probation.

Richard Craig Watson, 54 of American Fork, was arrested Friday and faces two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child. Watson, who goes by Craig, was also booked on an Adult Probation and Parole hold.

According to a statement of probable cause, the most recent charges against Watson stem from an incident that occurred in May or early June of 2017 as Watson was visiting family in Eagle Mountain.
