Glenn O’Rourke

Placerville man arrested for sexual texts to 15-year-old

A Placerville man was arrested last Friday for sending sexually suggestive texts to a 15-year-old boy.

Glenn O’Rourke, 26, was being held at El Dorado County Jail in Placerville Sunday on a felony charge of contact with a minor with the intent of having sex. His bond was set at $250,000.

On April 14, a 15-year-old boy had contacted the El Dorado County Sheriff’s office, saying that he had been receiving sexually suggestive and descriptive text messages from a 26-year-old man, who identified himself as “Glenn Coco.” The text messages described the man’s sexual desire for the 15-year-old boy.

The teen also reported that the 26-year-old had also sent him pornographic videos which showed “Coco” performing sexual acts, as well as numerous suggestive photographs. The boy also told investigators that “Coco” had initiated conversations with him several months earlier, and indicated that he wanted to meet the 15-year-old - all part of “Coco’s” attempt to groom the teenager to becoming his sex partner, authorities said.

El Dorado County detectives immediately began investigating the case, and later identified the man as O’Rourke. Investigators then used the boy’s cell phone to impersonate the teenager and set up a date and location to meet with O’Rourke. However, O’Rourke was arrested before he could go to the meeting location.

Detectives do not believe that the 15-year-old boy was O’Rourke’s only victim, and that there may be other young people who have been targeted by this sexual predator. Any one who may have information on O’Rourke, also known as Coco, should contact Det. Rich Horn at (530) 642-4715
