Adam Hodgson, 47, from Sheffield has been arrested after being stung by child predator team, Silent Justice.
After a string of indecent online messages between Adam and what he thought was a 13-year-old girl, an agreement to meet at Meadowhall train station was made.
Adam was greeted and questioned by members of the Silent Justice team but protested any allegations made against him regarding planning and organising to meet with the 13-year-old decoy.
The incident which occurred on Wednesday, 15, at around 12pm was broadcasted live to Facebook and raked in hundreds of views.
During the incident Adam attempted to escape but was quickly taken and held down by the team until a police officer arrived.
The meetup resulted in the arrest of Adam Hodgson after later admitting to the police he was there to meet the 13-year-old decoy.
With the rise of child predator teams catching out potential paedophiles, it’s quite clear that the UK has an epidemic of child grooming cases.
I had a chance to interview a young woman who almost fell victim to the hands of a sexual predator. She discusses her story and how to avoid them. For her own protection, she wishes to remain anonymous.
If you think you or someone you know are being groomed by a child predator, please contact the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000.
