Man stung by paedophile hunters released without charge

The man was caught confronted on camera by the group

A man in Lincoln has been arrested after a group of paedophile hunters exposed him to social media as a “bully” towards children — but he has been released without charge by police.

“Elite Predator Interceptors” went live on Facebook on Wednesday night to allegedly expose a middle-aged man from North Hykeham.

The video has over 43,000 views and has more than 2,000 comments.

He was accused of bullying underage kids, as well as telling them fictional role-playing stories about “saving them” from the Titanic.

In the video the paedophile hunter states that he has evidence of the man’s text conversations with children.

The man is believed to own multiple properties in the LN6 area, using multiple aliases too.

At the end of the video, police officers arrive to speak to the suspect and put him in a police van for questioning.

Lincolnshire Police has now confirmed that a 51-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to engage a child in sexual communication.

The man has been bailed pending further investigation.
