LYNNWOOD, WA (KIRO/CBS) - A man who admitted to raping a
12-year-old girl used the Whisper app to locate her, according to police
Ron Peterson, 21, was arrested for child rape and
released on bail after admitting to taking the girl to a motel where they had
Detectives said Peterson, who does not have a history of
sex crimes, used the app to chat with the girl and convinced her to send sexy
photos of herself. He then told her by phone how to remove the screen from her
bedroom window and run away.

The site shows their locations to other users nearby, making

"This one is problematic because it shotguns

Richard Whipple, a next-door neighbor of the victim's
family, said they moved in a few months ago. He believed the child was just

"I'm kind of shocked," Whipple said. "Around
here, those things don't happen."
