TAMPA — A man who police say is a registered violent sexual predator is being sought by investigators who believe he sexually assaulted a minor.
The suspect, Christopher L. Jones, 37, who was apparently on supervised release from a previous case, removed his ankle monitor so that he could not be tracked by police, investigators said late Tuesday. His whereabouts are unknown.
The sexual battery and lewd and lascivious molestation on a minor occurred on S 22nd Street in Tampa, police said.
Anyone who sees Jones is asked to call the Tampa Police Department at (813) 231-6130.
