DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)- Authorities are searching for a violent sexual predator in the Denver metro area and other states.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is looking for John Swietlicki. He is wanted for five counts of sex assault on a child.
He has a violent criminal history and should be considered armed and dangerous.
“We believe that he at least had access to guns so we ask the public don’t contact him, contact law enforcement,” said Douglas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Ron Hanavan.
Swietlicki, 44, may have left Colorado; authorities in Texas, California and Nevada are also looking for him.
He was last seen in Parker. Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies made the search for him public when he couldn’t be found on a warrant.
Swietlicki is known to be driving a 2007 green Jeep Rubicon, raised several inches with oversized tires. The Jeep has a Mitt Romney sticker and two Marine Corps decals in the top rear window.
The Ham radio license plate is KD0KZX.
Investigators said they are sure Swietlicki has at least one victim and they are searching for others.
