A level 3 sex offender accused of snatching a girl from a Seattle park was charged with first-degree kidnapping Monday.

Jesse Brisbin, 30, is accused of kidnapping a 6-year-old girl who was playing at Benefit Park on Beacon Hill and pulling her pants down.

The King County prosecutor’s office said Brisbin poses an "extreme risk to the community."

According to court documents, Brisbin first tried to lure the victim by saying he would give her a dollar if she went with him to his nearby home.

When the girl said no, Brisbin grabbed her, according to prosecutors.

Witnesses told KIRO 7 about 20 children and adults rushed Brisbin and made him call 911 to report what he had done.

After he was arrested, police said Brisbin told them he didn't remember what happened.

Brisbin has a history of sexual offenses. He was sentenced to more than two years in jail and wore an ankle bracelet after he exposed himself to two children at a Bellevue home in 2009.

KIRO 7 also found a record of another exposure case in New Jersey in which Brisbin tried to cut off an ankle bracelet he was ordered to wear.
