One of our investigators were contacted by this male and had ben communicating with him for around two months. The male thought he was communicating with a young child, and wanted him to meet him and go back to his flat and have sexual intercourse.
The male was arrested today (Saturday 18th June) by Essex Police Officers who were waiting for him in the Car Park of the Co-Op Store in Dunmow Essex.
He has now been released under investigation.
Please be aware that this person has been arrested after one or more of our investigators were contacted by them. They thought they were contacting a child under the age of 16. We do not entrap anyone and its the persons choice to meet the person they think is a child. Some cases we are unable to name them straight away due to the CPS requirements. They have been arrested on suspicion, and its down to the CPS to either NFA them or charge them for them to appear in court. If they are charged and the case goes to court, we will publish the entire chat logs, pictures and names of the people involved. If the Police feel they are unlikely to bring conviction against them, it doesn’t mean they are not guilty, and we will then publish the chat logs for the public to see.
