COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -

El Paso County Sheriff's Office has a warrant out for a sex offender who assaulted a Colorado Springs girl.

Ronald Eugene Winstead, 44, is also wanted for escaping from work release.

The arrest affidavit for the sex assault shows a girl was asleep when Winstead put his "hand under her shorts and underwear." Beyond that it gets too graphic for us to repeat here.

Winstead was supposed to be babysitting the girl - her age has not been released.

Sheriff's Lieutenant Lari Sevene also points out that Winstead's wanted for failing to show up for court.

"Obviously, as a result of that, he has multiple warrants that he is facing and we're just looking for some assistance from the community to locate him, " she said.

Sheriff's investigators think there's a good chance Winstead is still in Colorado, and the fear is there could be more victims.

"It's a huge concern anytime they fall off the grid," said Sevene, "The concern is why are they hiding? Why are they not registering and doing what they're supposed to be doing?"

If you know where Winstead is, contact your local police or sheriff's office.

You can contact the El Paso County Sheriff's Office at 719-520-7333.
