Isle of Wight man charged after arranging to meet a child

A man from the Isle of Wight has been charged with attempting to groom a child and attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child.

The Islander was arrested by Police on Saturday (06/01/18) following an online sting by the group ‘S.K.I.D Community’, who lured Moore to Portswood Road, Southampton. A video captured by the group has shown the moment Moore was confronted.

Moore was remanded in custody over the weekend and appeared before magistrates on Monday, where the case was adjourned to the Crown Court on 5th February.
