David Petr Arrested in Enticement Investigation

In December 2011, the Lincoln Police Department was contacted regarding lewd messages sent to a 14 year old Lincoln boy via instant messaging. The messages, sent by a man using the screen name David Regueira, encouraged the boy to perform sexual acts in exchange for drugs. Further investigation revealed that David Regueira is actually 33 year old David Petr, a registered sex offender whose previous victim was a 13 year old male.

Numerous online conversations were found between David Petr and teenage boys involving sexual conduct in exchange for money, alcohol, cigarettes or drugs. Five adolescent boys, ranging in age from 14-16, have been identified as having such contact with David Petr over the past two years.

On April 6, 2012, David Petr was arrested for Enticement by Electronic Communication Device following a pre-arranged meeting with an investigator. David Petr has been lodged in the Lancaster County Jail.

David Petr frequents places such as parks and bus stops to meet young males. It is possible that there are additional victims in the Lincoln area. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Investigator Amen with Lincoln Police Department's Family Crimes Unit at (402) 441-8979.
