Big photos, videos below.
Update: Since we told you about the attempted kidnapping of an eight-year-old girl from her Aurora bedroom early yesterday morning (see our previous coverage below), local authorities have made the still-unknown perpetrator their highest priority. In addition to releasing a sketch of the suspect in conjunction with a press conference at which Aurora Police Department Chief Dan Oates announced, "There is a predator out there," a $10,000 reward is being offered in the case -- the highest ever for the APD. Photos, videos and details below.

The house where the incident took place.
At about 12:15 a.m. on Monday, as we've reported, cops were dispatched to a home on the 1600 block of Hanover Street.

There, officers believe, a man removed a screen and opened an unlocked window of a bedroom occupied by an eight-year-old girl. He's then thought to have reached inside, grabbed the girl and pulled her into the alley behind the structure.

The alley behind the house.
At that point, the girl screamed, alerting her father. He's said to have run out of the residence just as his daughter was sprinting back to the house -- and in the alley, he saw a man drive away in a newish silver or gray BMW sedan. He headed southbound down the alley, then west on East 16th Avenue.

The father got close enough not only to provide a solid description of the man, described as a white male with blond hair wearing a black winter jacket, but also to smell "a distinct odor of cigarette smoke" coming from him, the police note.

The girl's injuries was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Her dad subsequently sat down with Aurora police sketch artists, who came up with an illustration of the suspect that was shared in conjunction with the aforementioned press conference featuring Chief Oates.

During the address, featured here in its entirety, Oates revealed that in addition to the typical $2,000 reward being offered through Crime Stoppers, Aurora is kicking in an additional $8,000, bringing the total to an unprecedented $10,000. As reported by 9News, Oates added, "I'm giving out this information to alert the entire Denver metro area that this predator is on the loose. We all need to be as watchful and vigilant as we can. I've been in this business a long time and I've never seen anything like this."

If you have any information about this incident, you're encouraged to phone Detective Christine Hurley at 303-739-6113 or Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

I don't "defend" any particular behavior, you dumb ignorant redneck fuck. I simply post the FACTS -- no matter who or what they may "favour." Just suck it up and acknowledge the COLD HARD REALITY that YOU are full of shit and that it is apparent that you'd rather have a dead child than a living one. Fucking morAn!

"however your stats are completely incorrect. they fail to show that most sex offenders leave the area of conviction and move else where so prey is easier to find... " No, it's your assertions that are horse shit since you provide NOTHING of the sort that even CONFIRMS it. Seriously, asswipe, the report is based on stats compiled by the FB fucking I. https://www.ncjrs.gov/sexoffenders/treatment.html http://www.bjs.gov/index.cfm?ty=pbdetail&iid=1136 http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=misunderstood-crimes Honestly, I don't know where the fuck you got this 93% figure (probably some idiotic activist page notorious for pulling such stats out of their rear end). As usual, you're nothing more than another long line of idiots proudly part of the Internet Outrage Contigent. Ask yourself, buddy, do you honestly believe that releasing cold-blooded murderer is LESS of a threat to public safety as opposed to someone who merely got his jollies off on children? Are you telling me you'd rather BURY a child as opposed to counseling him/her after sexual abuse? Sorry Jeffro, you are full of shit.

Further evidence that Smokers are lowlife scumbags.

The suburbs are a dangerous place; white children are not safe walking down the street or even sleeping in their own beds.  This type of crime - kidnapping, rape and murder of children, is dominated by white males.

Should be easy enough to track the blood trail...

Wait, the father didn't put a couple of rounds into the perp? What is this world coming to...

JMO but since sex offenders can't be cured nor can the keep they're issue's in control for long it's time to pass a law that actually takes sex offenders off the streets permanently...

@Jeff Williams It's called the gallows - Colorado should well consider bringing it back.

Repuglykkkans and Teabaggers can't be cured either, so let's implement the same gallows for them.
