Police arrest 38-year-old suspected sex predator ‘hunting’ minors online

Police have arrested a 38-year-old man suspected of being a sexual predator ‘hunting’ under aged victims online. He had even convinced one to send him sex-related photos, police told Philenews on Thursday.

Nicosia district court has remanded him in custody for eight days in connection with ‘hunting’ minors online for sexual purposes. As well as for sex molestation and possession of child pornographic material, police also said.

Police first confiscated a mobile phone and an electronic watch, a Smart Watch in particular, which were in his possession. And after a court order was issued, police searched his residence where a laptop and an electronic tablet were seized as evidence.

The suspect allegedly confessed the crimes during interrogation by members of the Cybercrime Sub-Directorate.
