Rohnert Park public safety detectives were notified about the incident March 29 by agents with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Detectives then contacted the girl’s family and confirmed that the child’s personal information was correct, officials said.
The IP address led investigators to Goerke’s residence. He was arrested Monday on suspicion of child endangerment and a judge has issued a search warrant of the suspect’s residence.
Johnson said detectives are analyzing all of Goerke’s electronics equipment. He said it does not appear that the suspect had any physical contact with the victim, but detectives are still investigating.
“Sometimes during the course of an investigation, other victims will come forward and disclose other criminal activity,” he said.
Police said anyone with information related to the investigation, or who knows of any other potential victims, should contact Rohnert Park police at 707-584-2630.
