Glenn O'Rourke

A Placerville man was booked into county jail after a 15-year-old boy said to be the intended victim of the alleged sexual predator helped the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department set up his capture.

Glenn O’Rourke, 26, was taken into custody after an arrest warrant was requested for O’Rourke through the District Attorney’s Office.

On Monday, April 14, according to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, a 15-year-old boy reported to EDSO that he had received sexually suggestive and descriptive text messages from an unknown 26-year-old male, who identified himself as Glenn Coco. The text messages described the man’s sexual desires for the 15-year-old. Additionally, O’Rourke, under the guise of Coco, sent the boy homemade pornographic videos of himself performing sexual acts and numerous suggestive photographs.

He allegedly initiated conversations with the boy and his desire to meet the boy. “Glenn Coco” began casual conversation several months earlier in an attempt to groom the boy into becoming his partner for sexual pleasure.

“El Dorado County Detectives immediately began investigating the case against this sexual predator, who was targeting an unsuspecting youth in our community,” the release stated. The 26-year-old was identified several days later as Glenn O’Rourke from Placerville.

With the assistance of the 15-year-old boy, Detectives contacted O’Rourke using the boy’s cellular telephone and impersonated the boy. A meeting date and location was quickly established. O’Rourke never made it to meeting location. Detectives were in place and arrested O’Rourke without incident. He was later booked into the county jail and his bail is $250,000.

“Sheriff John D’Agostini takes these types of cases extremely seriously,” the release said. “Sexual Predator cases are fully and completely investigated to keep our children and communities safe.”

Detectives do not believe the 15-year-old in this case is O’Rourke’s only victim. Anyone with information regarding O’Rourke (also known as Coco) is asked to call Detective Rich Horn at 530-642-4715.
