DENVER — After a Longmont man was arrested for allegedly kidnapping a 14-year-old girl from Connecticut and then bringing her all the way back to Colorado with him, your family’s safety is top of mind.

Police say the man met the girl online.

Local law enforcement agencies remind parents to always keep an eye on what your child does online, especially because the sites they communicate on are ever changing.

A special investigator for the Jefferson County District Attorney’s office has arrested nearly 800 suspected sexual predators in the past 19 years. He says these predators will pretend to be anyone to get at their victims.
