Hudson Valley Man Arrested During ‘Predator’ Show Filming
Remember 'To Catch A Predator'? Host Chris Hansen has relaunched the reality TV concept with a new program called 'Hansen vs Predator'. And a Hudson Valley man has been arrested during filming of the show's debut season.
The show features producers posing as minors looking to engage in explicit activities with adults. When the suspect arrives, Hansen confronts the alleged abusers who are often arrested for their crimes.
The Putnam Daily Voice reports filming occurred in Fairfield, CT but several New York residents were arrested, including 19-year-old Vincent Ambrosio of Wappingers Falls and 60-year-old Michael Gentile of Brewster. Michalel Manzi, 32, of Harrison was also taken into custody.
The charges levied against the suspects include Enticement of A Minor, Criminal Attempt at First Degree, Second Degree Sexual Assault and Criminal Attempt of Risk or Injury or Imaring the Morals of a Minor.
Hansen vs. Predator raised nearly $90,000 via Kickstarter to launch the new show.
