Aaron Joel Lee – Repeat Sex Offender – Nabbed by 12 year old

A 12-year-old girl helped nab a registered sex offender in Littleton on Monday.

The 12-year-old was walking in Sterne Park when a man in a green Subaru drove up and tried to lure her into his car, Lt. Charles Broadhead said. “He made sexually suggestive gestures to her,” Broadhead said.

The girl ran off, but not before she memorized the man’s license plate.

Before she could get home and call police, a woman who was in Gallup Park told a police officer who was passing by that she had seen a man making similarly suggestive gestures to her — and he was driving a green Subaru.

The officer flagged down the man and talked to him, but the woman left the area before she could give a good description of the man.

Luckily, by then, the 12-year-old had called police and given a good description of the man.

He is Aaron Joel Lee, 36, a registered sex offender in Centennial.

He pled guilty to sexual exploitation of a child in September of 2006.

That conviction is a misdemeanor, so Lee doesn’t appear on Arapahoe County’s Web page listing sex offenders, Broadhead said.

Lee was booked into the Arapahoe County Jail for enticement of a child, a class 4 felony.

Littleton police said they are “incredibly proud” of the girl for having the wits to get the license plate number while fleeing from a dangerous situation.

There was never any physical contact between Lee and the 12-year-old.
