Vigilantes arrested after bluewater livestream sting goes badly wrong

Published

Two members of The Hunted One have been arrested and charged with a criminal offence after their sting went badly wrong.

Police have now charged Lee John Harvey, 20, and Joe Simpkin, 20, with affray after confronting a suspected child sex groomer.

Both men were released on bail and were ordered to appear before Medway Magistrates court on May 10th.

Police had previously warned the group to stop interfering with their work and potentially entrapping innocent people.

A spokesperson for Kent Police said a 29-year-old man from East London was arrested at Bluewater Shopping Centre on suspicion of grooming last Sunday.

Kent Police are further warning that “Paedophile hunters” are having a significant concern about taking law into their own hands and the methods groups like The Hunted One are using.

The arrests come after a brawl happened at the Bluewater Shopping Centre near Dartford on Easter Sunday when The Hunted One confronted a man who was suspected of grooming a teenage girls, the tactics they used has now landed two of them in court.

The Hunted One revealed the location they were meeting a suspected child groomer and streamed it live on the internet, any person in the right mind would know doing so would attract members of the public.

The Hunted One has now had their facebook page shut down following the events that unfolded. Police Hour warned that the tactics of this page would only lead to the hunters being arrested. 

We do however support Dark Justice who have jailed many paedophiles, they operate in a professional way despite their high level of media attention and demand continue to operate in a grounded way that means they hand all evidence and videos to the cops.

Dark Justice spends hours sitting in police stations giving statements and once a conviction happens only then they will make the videos and the details public.

Recently Dark Justice won a landmark court case meaning they can continue to pose as teenage girls online.

Kent Police have now raised further concerns about the undercover operations that ‘The Hunted One’ ran and said anyone with evidence of online grooming or knows a suspect who is planning to meet a potential victim should contact the police first.

Chief Superintendent Thomas Richards, head of Kent Police’s public protection unit, said evidence-gathering was a specialist job and it takes time and skill to bring an offender to justice.

He said: “We do have significant concerns about people taking the law into their own hands and the methods they use, and in some cases acting outside of the law.

“We would strongly advise against getting involved in or setting up activities to entrap those suspected of intending to commit offences.

“Although seemingly well-meaning, this can significantly hinder our work, compromise on-going investigations and negate months of investigative work.

“There is also the risk that it can potentially identify people who are completely innocent and mistakenly associate them with grooming offences.”

The sad thing about this case is that ‘The Hunted One’ will be the criminals and the paedophile could walk free at court because of the actions of this group.
