HOUSTON—Crime Stoppers and police are seeking the public’s help locating a suspected sex offender.

Timothy Campbell, 45, is charged with sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child.

Police said he met and struck up a friendship with a 15-year-old girl online.

The girl reportedly told Campbell her real age, but investigators said he told the girl he was 26.

In February of 2010, Campbell and the victim met in person.

Police said Campbell drove the teen to a secluded area near Cypress, where he touched her inappropriately and sexually assaulted her.

A few days later, police said Campbell assaulted the girl again at his home, located in the 3000 block of Omeara Road.

After an extensive investigation, Campbell was charged on April 9, and warrants for his arrest were issued.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477. Tips may also be submitted online at crime-stoppers.org. A cash reward of up to $5,000 is available for information leading to Campbell’s arrest.
