November 11, 2007
RENO ” A Reno man was arrested on suspicion of using the Internet bulletin board Craigslist.org to lure two teenage boys to his home, where he was accused of sexually assaulting one of them, police said.
Jason Hunter, 32, was booked Thursday into the Washoe County Jail on charges of using technology to lure a child, sexual assault on a child, and open and gross lewdness.
According to police, the suspect met the two boys, 13 and 15, through Craigslist under the ruse he was a 20-year-old woman.
During online conversations, the “woman” asked the boys to come over to her cousin’s home where they could party, investigators said.
One of the boy’s misled his mother into giving them a ride there, saying instead it was a friend’s home.
Hunter is accused of providing them alcohol. Both boys later passed out on his bed, and the younger boy told police he awoke to find the suspect sexually assaulting him.
