Convicted sex offender arrested for allegedly threatening teen for sex

While most of Houston was preparing for a big Astros victory Wednesday morning, investigators say Irvin Dixon spent his 43rd birthday hunting for little boys on the streets of Houston.

Police say the already convicted sex offender spotted a 14-year-old male at a bus stop on Fondren. Investigators say Dixon then got out of his vehicle and told the teen he had a gun and to get into the car. Police say the boy jumped out of the vehicle and took off.

Sources close to the investigation say Dixon then found another 16-year-old male that same morning only blocks away. Police say that child was riding around with Dixon in his vehicle, but by that time police had received a 911 call from the 14-year-old boy. Cops pulled Dixon over and arrested him for attempted aggravated kidnapping.

Dixon is a convicted sex offender who was prosecuted in 1994 for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy. He's listed as a moderate risk.
