12-Year-Old Fresno Girl Rescued from Pedophile in Denver, Police Say. Suspect Once Ran for Congress.
A 12-year-old Fresno girl has been rescued after police say she was abducted by a man who is an admitted pedophile and went to prison for more than a year for threatening to kill either President George W. Bush or President Barack Obama, Fox News has learned.
The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office held a press conference Saturday to announce the arrest of Nathan Larson, 40, in the alleged abduction.
Larson trolled the girl online and then flew from his home in Virginia to Fresno in order to abduct her, authorities told Fox News.
Police got wind and were able to arrest Larson on a layover in Denver and rescue the girl.
Nathan generated national headlines in 2018 when he announced he was running as an independent candidate in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District.
“Nathan Larson is a pedophile and a white supremacist. And he’s running for Congress,” said a headline in USA Today at the time.
