UPDATE: Man Accused of Molesting Girl Captured in Washington

An accused sexual predator wanted in Colorado Springs, has been captured in Washington state. Theodore Ivan Robbins, 44, was arrested without incident Friday night.

Police report investigators collaborated with the Chelan County Sheriff's Office in the search for Robbins.

In Robbins' arrest warrant, investigators report in October of 2008, an anonymous CrimeStoppers led them to look further into the reported abuse of a 5-year-old girl.

The girl and her mother lived in a Colorado Springs apartment complex where Ted Robbins was the maintenance man in 2007. According to the warrant Robbins would baby-sit the little girl on occasion, including at least once overnight when her mother's boyfriend and the girl's mother were arrested following a report of domestic violence. In an interview with police, the girl's mother admitted to taking drugs with Robbins.

The warrant paperwork goes on to show in late 2008, the little girl stayed at a friend’s house and started telling stories about where Robbins had touched her.

In police interviews that followed, the girl described frequent sexual encounters with Robbins, both at his home and on a camping trip while her mom slept in a tent nearby.

Police interviewed Robbins in early 2009 and he denied the allegations. He has since failed to appear in El Paso County Court, and police are still looking for him.

The warrant also indicates someone close to the little girl, most likely her mother, knew about her allegations, but didn't report them to police.

Included in police evidence are group photos of Robbins on the camping trip, and a pair of children's underwear reportedly found in Robbins' apartment.

Robbins is also implicated in crimes in Washington state, where he's accused of a number of molestations over a period of four years.

Police ask anyone who may have additional information on Robbins to call the crimes against children division at 719-444-7535.

    Hallelujah!!!!!!!! Found GUILTY!!!!!!! Sentenced 4 to life. Pray they keep him for LIFE! That little girl and the little boy he abused over several years ( along with the others to scared and threatened to come forward and speak) carry the pain and trauma he caused them for the rest of theirs, Nothing can give them back their innocence or childhood. Is a prison sentence truly retribution?

    So..In the bible it stsates"thou shall not judge or you will be judged" and you know we all run short of the glory Of God..you are condeming a man and not one of you have any proof except what is on the news. I know the chick that is making the alligations and all she ever did with that lil girl was send her to Teds house so she could do meth/coke or get drunk and fight in front of that poor child ALL THE TIME!!!!! so ask yourselves...WHAT WOULD JESUS DO????

    How could the mother not realize what was happening to her child? Neglect for sure. I heart goes out to that girl. She will be traumatized for life. That mother is a disgrace. She should get the Esure done so that she can never have kids again.

    My heart is breaking for that little girl. What a nightmare existence to be thrust into... Her mother should be chained up and skinned alive along side that sick sack of evil worthlessness that did this to her. That poor baby. I hope they send her to live with a family who can ACTUALLY care for her and love her and help her heal from this.

    Im glad he was finally captured. I hope he did not traumatize any more kids while he was hiding. I hope that they do not let him out. In my opinion all sexual predators should remain in jail for the rest of their miserable lives. I have 2 little girls and worry about them and their safety constantly when I am not with them. Its one of every parents nightmare to have something like that happen to their child. We turn homicidal. I would go for blood before I even considered calling the police. I know he will get what he gave in prison. HAHAHA. GOOD.

    Why does it take 22 months to investigate the rape of a 5 y/o child? Opportunity missed!

    I wouldn't swear to this, of course, but this picture looks very similar to a person sitting across the seat from me on a flight from COS-MSP this morning, Thursday....
