SYCAMORE – A 23-year-old convicted sex offender who ran away from officers Tuesday was arrested Wednesday afternoon in the same neighborhood, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.

Christian M. Elliott, formerly of the 300 block of South Sixth Street in Malta, was arrested on three warrants when he was found at 3:38 p.m. Wednesday in the 800 block of Ridge Drive.

He’s been charged with failure to register as a sex offender.

Narielle Harris, 20, who lives in the apartment where Elliott was found and was in the same room with him when officers arrived, was arrested and charged with aiding a fugitive.

Elliott pleaded guilty to aggravated criminal sex abuse in November 2015 and was sentenced to 180 days in jail.

According to the Illinois State Police Sex Offender database, he was 20 at the time of the offense, and the victim was between the ages of 13 and 17.

Elliott and Harris both will have bond hearings in DeKalb County court at 1 p.m. Thursday.
