PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) -- A group angry that police had not warned residents of a Pueblo neighborhood about sex assaults in the area took matters into their own hands Sunday and chased down an alleged suspect.

Alex Pacheco, who was one of the pursuers, says residents were looking for a man suspected of two separate sexual acts involving children when they got word that a man matching the suspect's description had been spotted. Pacheco says residents confronted the man and he ran.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain, a half dozen people held the man until police arrived. The man was taken away in a police car and later released because of lack of evidence.
