RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – Rancho Cucamonga Police are asking for the public’s help to located a suspect who allegedly sent nude photos to a decoy he thought was a 14-year-old boy.
During a 9-day operation in August 2018, Detectives targeted adult suspects who attempted to lure minor children to meet to engage in sexual acts. Detectives used an undercover law enforcement social media account as a tool for the investigation. Suspect, Shadi Al-Abdual Razaq, 33, of Rancho Cucamonga, began online chatting with who he believed was a 14-year-old boy. The detectives talked back and fourth with the suspect who sent nude pictures of himself to the decoy. He then planned to meet with the minor decoy to engage in sexual acts. He showed up at the meeting place and was taken into custody.
Formal charges were filed and the suspect was released on bail. He appeared to multiple court dates. After being released on bail, the suspect was detained by Agents from Immigration Customs Enforcement, as he is a resident of the Country of Jordan and is here in the US on a Visa. He was released from federal custody and fitted with a GPS ankle bracelet to monitor his whereabouts between court dates.
Detectives learned that the suspect may have been attempting to leave the state. On January 16, 2019, the District Attorney’s Office asked to the court to revoke his bail. The request was denied pending a hearing planned on January 25, 2019. Days after the request to the court, on around January 19, 2019, the suspect stopped charging his ankle bracelet. The suspect failed to appear to court on January 25, 2019, and at this time his whereabouts are unknown. A No Bail Warrant was issued for his arrest.
Authorites believe that the suspect may be driving in a tan colored Lexus RX with California License Plate # 4SUP458 to North Carolina. Detectives are releasing photos of the suspect and his vehicle.
If anyone recognizes the suspect or has information regarding this investigation, they should contact the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department Detective Bureau or call 911.
