KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

A convicted sex offender was arrested Wednesday for sex crimes against children and for failing to register as an offender after moving to Kenner, according to Kenner Police.

Carlos Alberto Montero Sr., 52, faces two counts of first-degree rape, sexual battery, indecent behavior with a juvenile and failure to register as a sex offender. 

On Tuesday, the Kenner Police Department received a sexual assault complaint against Montero. Detectives met with three children, two girls and a boy, who said that Montero had molested them when they were between the ages of 6 and 13, according to police. The sex acts included oral sex, Montero masturbating in front of the children and forcing the children to touch him.    

Montero was convicted in 2002 of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile and in 2006 and 2010 for failing to register as a sex offender. Police said Montero has been living in the 1900 block of Kentucky Avenue for one month. Registry rules require Montero to complete a change of address within three days of moving. Current registry records show Montero is registered at a Gretna address. 

At the time of publication, Montero remained jailed on a $ 1.6 million bond.
