AURORA, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado judge has sentenced a sex offender who tried to abduct an 11-year-old girl off an Aurora street last year to 25 years in prison.

The Sentinel reports that an Arapahoe County District Court judge sentenced 33-year-old Tyler Christensen after Christensen pleaded guilty to three felony counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

Christensen was a registered sex offender in Aurora when he was arrested in October 2018.

Investigators say Christensen grabbed the girl and covered her mouth as she was walking from her bus stop to her home around 5:15 p.m. on Oct. 11, 2018.

The girl was able to flee the area after she screamed and bit the suspect's ring finger. She then ran home and called 911.
