Man arrested in sexual predator case

Glenn O’Rourke, from Placerville, was arrested on suspicion of contact with a minor with intent of sexual relations by the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office.

O’Rourke was arrested after a 15-year-old boy told sheriff’s office that he had received sexually suggestive and descriptive text messages from an unknown 26 year old male, who identified himself as Glenn Coco. The text messages described the man’s sexual desires for the teenager. Additionally O’Rourke allegedly sent the teen homemade pornographic videos of himself performing sexual acts and numerous suggestive photographs. The man initiated conversations and his desire to meet the boy. The sheriff’s office said “Glenn Coco” began casual conversation several months earlier in an attempt to groom the boy into becoming his partner for sexual pleasure.

The man was identified several days later as O’Rourke. An arrest warrant was requested for O’Rourke through the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office. With the assistance of the teen, detectives contacted O’Rourke using the boy’s cell phone and impersonated the boy. A meeting date and location was quickly established. O’Rourke never made it to meeting location. Detectives were in place and arrested O’Rourke without incident. He was later booked into the county jail and his bail is $250,000.

Detectives do not believe the 15 year old in this case is O’Rourke’s only victim. Anyone with information regarding O’Rourke, aka. Coco, is asked to call Det. Rich Horn at 530-642-4715.
