GREELEY, Colo. — An anonymous tip to Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers has led to the arrest of a suspected child sex predator, the Greeley Police Department (GPD) said Friday.

GPD said in a release they received the tip on July 28 and later arrested Steaven Anthony Henderson, who they said groomed and lured a young boy to his home in Greeley and sexually assaulted him.  

Police said the tip suggested Henderson, 37, may have visited local parks and apartment complexes in search of young male victims in the area of 14th Avenue and 5th Street.

Henderson was arrested at his home on Aug. 5, police said, on a felony charge of sexual assault on a child (pattern of abuse) and taken to the Weld County Jail.
