A man in Manatee County allegedly lured a 5-year-old girl away from a neighborhood birthday party to his home across the street and sexually battered her. Now police think there could be more victims.
Christopher Thompson, 44, of Palmetto forced the young girl to watch sexual videos involving a child and adult man.
The little girl was having fun at a birthday party when Thompson lured her across the street right into his home. After he allegedly battered her, he told her not to mention anything to anyone.
Police searched his house and found images that led them to believe he has committed lewd acts on multiple young girls. They removed a “significant” number of electronics which had child pornography.
