Lake County Sheriff’s Office reports that deputies conducted an expeditious investigation and located a missing 14-year-old girl at a motel in the block of 31200 North Route 45, Fremont Township, northwest of Libertyville.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office deputies discovered the juvenile was at the motel with Vincent A. Dunson Jr., 22, of the 3200 block of West Thomas Street, Chicago. According to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, an investigation determined Dunson picked the juvenile up from her home and drove her to the motel, where he engaged in acts of sexual penetration with the juvenile.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office arranged transportation of the juvenile to a local hospital for evaluation, and she was later reunited with her family.
Dunson was arrested and subsequently charged with three counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse (Class 2 Felonies), and Traveling to Meet a Minor (Class 3 Felony). Dunson remains held in the Lake County Jail where he was awaiting an initial court hearing Thursday morning, March 21, 2019.
Sheriff John Idleburg said, “Preying on our most vulnerable is one of the most horrific acts one could do. I am thankful our Highway Patrol Deputies located her so quickly and our Detectives conducted extensive follow-up to determine what occurred.”
Sheriff Idleburg reminds the community all defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
