The Kelso Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance in locating Eric Sean Roloson, who has a felony arrest warrant for two counts of first-degree child rape and two counts of first-degree child molestation.

A man with Cowlitz County felony warrants for two counts of first-degree child rape and two counts of first-degree child molestation was arrested in Hawaii Monday, according to the Kelso Police Department.

Officers with the U.S. Marshals Office arrested Eric Sean Roloson, 40, on the Island of Hawai’i after a citizen in the state called Kelso police with his location, according to Kelso PD Captain Rich Fletcher.

Fletcher said Roloson will likely be extradited back to Washington in the next two to three weeks.

A warrant for Roloson’s arrest was originally issued in Cowlitz County on March 25, and Kelso police last week asked for the public’s help locating Roloson, who has family connections in Hawaii.

The department’s Facebook post accrued 1.8 million views and more than 36,000 shares, which Kelso Police say helped lead to Roloson’s arrest.

The two alleged victims were both less than 12 years old at the time of the assaults and were known to Roloson, according to court documents. The alleged assaults occurred between 2012 and December 2019 at various houses in Kelso, Long Beach and Portland, according to court documents.
