Crackdown names third wanted predator

HOUSTON During the month of April, Crime Stoppers will launch this aggressive campaign to protect children. The initiative will focus on locating felons who remain at large for offenses against children. The child predators are wanted for victimizing our children, for failing to register as sex offenders, or for failing to comply with their probation requirements after being convicted of a sexual offense against a minor.

Kinglsey Nwagwu was charged October 5, 2005 with two counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child under the age of 14, and warrants 1038467 and 1038468 were issued for his arrest by the 182nd District Court, with a $30,000 bond on each count.

Nwagwu was charged for a June 15, 2002 sexual assault of a distant relative, and an August 1, 2003 assault of the same victim, who was watching television when Nwagwu took her into the bedroom, disrobed her and sexually assaulted her. The victim testified to officers at the Children's Assessment Center that these were not the only two times Nwagwu had sexually assaulted her.

Nwagwu's last known address is 7939 West Airport in southwest Houston. He is believed still to be in the city. Nwagwu is described as a black male, 24 years old, 5'8" tall, 145 pounds, very short black hair, brown eyes, thin mustache & goatee, with a medium complexion and lean build
