Predator Check is spotlighting a wanted man -- a convicted sex offender who is not where he's supposed to be. Now there's a reward for his arrest.
Take a look at 52-year-old Robert Rodriguez. He's 5-foot-4, weighs 165-pounds with tattoos on both arms and a distinctive scar on his face. In 1999, Robert Rodriguez was convicted of 'sexual assault of a child.'
His last known address was supposed to be on the 2900-block of Des Chaumes in northeast Houston near the Eastex Freeway and Collingsworth.
Rodriguez registered there as a sex offender after his release from a 10-year prison sentence for the sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl. But when police tried to check on him, they learned Rodriguez had never been there.
“This is a predator against a small female victim,” says Katherine Cabaniss from Houston Crime Stoppers. “He's someone who committed that offense and went to prison for 10 years. After he was released, he indicated that he wasn't going to comply with the law because he didn't tell the law where he was living.”
Robert Rodriguez’s last check-in with police was in February, when he allegedly gave the false address. The warrant for his arrest was issued in May.
If you know where to find this man, Houston Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information that leads to his arrest. You can call anonymously at 713-222-TIPS.
