A Sydney man has been arrested outside a Parramatta pool, after allegedly grooming a 14-year-old girl online. The 39-year-old had gone to the pool to meet the girl, where he was arrested by local police yesterday afternoon.
Detectives from the Sex Crimes Command’s Strike Force Trawler had been posing as the 14-year-old. They allege the man made numerous sexually explicit comments to the child, as well as arrangements to meet with her.
This comes weeks after the 10-year anniversary of the death of 15-year-old Carly Ryan, who was the first girl to be killed in Australia by an online predator in February, 2007.
