UPDATE – Police say they’ve arrested a Beloit man wanted for the sexual assault of a child.
An alert was sent out Wednesday asking for information on the whereabouts of Joshua D. Schindler who is charged with first degree sexual assault of a child. Friday, he was placed under arrest.
Waukesha Police assisted in the arrest.
UPDATE – Beloit Police have posted a better picture of the man they are looking for on child sex assault charges.
Beloit Police are using an unusual selfie to help find an alleged child sex offender.
The image was put out on their Facebook page Wednesday morning in an attempt to find 29-year-old Joshua D. Schindler, who is accused of first degree sexual assault of a child. The image is clearly a selfie as you can see the mirror and phone Schindler used to take it reflected in his sunglasses.
He is described as 6’2 320lbs with brown hair and green eyes.
Almost immediately, people began responding to the unusual suspect photo, to which police posted the following reply.
“We do not have a current picture of him, and we are not allowed to use a DOT photo of him on social media. Yes we know it isn’t the best, but it is important to have a ballpark idea of what he looks like as that is better than nothing.” They also mention they are looking for a better photo to use.
Police say Schindler may be driving a blue 2 door Chevy Cavalier with Wisconsin license plate 272WVN. His vehicle was last seen in Waukesha, and Schindler has ties to that area.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 911.
