UPDATE--The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says Webster was listed as "Delinquent" on its Delinquent Sex Offender Registry but was taken down from the registry on the October 13th when U.S. Marshals arrested Webster on October 13th. Oklahoma Department of Corrections says Webster had been listed as "Delinquent" since November 2008.

U.S.
Marshals believe a convicted child molester knows how to gain a parent’s trust and offer to watch a child in exchange for a place to stay.

FOX23 News was the only station there as US Marshals busted Alvin Eugene Webster, one of America’s Most Wanted.

More information as investigators suspect he may have molested more girls.

The 36-year-old man was convicted in 2008 of molesting a 3-year-old girl. He was given a suspended sentence and was charged earlier this year with molesting a four-year-old girl.

U.S. Marshals say he failed to register as a sex offender and has assumed several aliases.

FOX23’s Abbie Alford talked the mother of Webster’s first victim.

Marshals say Alvin Webster is known as Alvin Locust or Eugene.

He’ll tell a convincing sob story to get parents to let him get close to their children.

It’s been four years since Donna heard the name Alvin Webster.

"I burst into tears,” says Donna. Who we will not release her full name to protect her daughter who was Webster’s victim.

She was relieved when she saw FOX23 News showing U.S. Marshals arresting Webster in Downtown Tulsa.

"It was relieving when I heard his name. My heart stopped," says the mother.

The last time she the man who molested her three-year-old daughter was in a Sequoyah County courtroom in 2008.

In exchange for a guilty plea Webster was given a 15-year suspended sentence.

"I could never tell my daughter with a straight face that he was behind bars because he wasn't as far as I knew," says Donna.

Webster was far from behind bars. Investigators say Webster was on the run and hiding from the law. He failed to register as a sex offender and was accused of molesting a four-year-old girl in Muskogee County earlier this year.

However, he couldn’t be found. Marshal’s suspect there is other victims since he’s known to have talent for gaining the trust of parents.

"I felt so played because when he did it to me I thought he was being sincere,” says Donna.

Webster was a neighbor’s friend and he got so close to Donna’s kids they called him “Uncle”. For a single parent the prospect of a trustworthy free babysitter was too good to pass up.

"What single mother wouldn't take free babysitting from someone that the trust and I did trust him and that was a mistake," says Donna.

A mistake she discovered much to her horror when her little girl started sharing with mom and grandma how “Uncle” had been touching her.

“To find out that it was all a lie that it wasn't just an opportunity that approached that he planned all of that out to get to my children that just infuriates me,” says Donna.

Webster was last living with a family where he was watching a three-year-old girl in Tulsa.

Tulsa Child Crisis detectives say they are investigating if that girl was molested by Webster.

Webster is being held in the Muskogee County Jail with no bond. He faces federal charges for spending time in other states and not registering as a sex offender. That is a violation of the Adam Walsh Act.

Marshals say they are receiving tip from parents about Alvin Webster who is known to go by other names.

If you have any information call U.S. Marshals in the Eastern District of Oklahoma at (918) 687-2523.

Webster was listed on the Sequoyah County Sex Offender Registry, but he was not listed on the State Sex Offender Registry or the delinquent registry.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says if the offender is back in custody they may be taken down.

However, he wasn’t’ posted the day Webster was arrested.

FOX23 News will check to see if this was an oversight or if there was a reason he flew under the radar.

If the guy had been evaluated by psychiatrists the very first time he was ever arrested, then he would have shown to have a propensity for children.. and locked up for an indefinite period.. to be cured or never get out... The Injustice system is at fault for any crimes he committed after his very first arrest and release.

"Adam Walsh Act". O.K. So this kids parents are so incompetent that they leave there child unattended and he gets Murdered. Now we listen to the same man to tell us how to take care of our kids! I'd rather listen to a guy that has a couple of healthy 18 year olds tell me how to take care of kids.
