Police have swooped in on an alleged child sex predator accused of using popular social media apps to lure children as young as 12.

The 20-year-old man from Gracemere in Central Queensland has been charged with a litany of sex crimes including child rape and using the internet to procure a minor under 16.

‘Police will allege the 20-year-old man used social media to contact his victims ranging in ages from 12-15-years-old,’ Queensland Police said.

‘He has been charged with rape, unlawful carnal knowledge, possession of child exploitation material, indecent treatment of a child and using internet to procure children under 16.’

The man was arrested by officers from the local child protection investigation unit shortly after a search warrant was executed on September 18.   

Police allege at least eight children are fell victim to the accused paedophile, but investigators suspect there could be more. 

‘Detectives are seeking further information to assist with an ongoing operation into alleged child exploitation offences in the Rockhampton region between January 2019 and September 2020,’ Queensland Police said. 

‘Investigators are calling for other victims in the Capricornia District who have not come forward yet to do so and are urging anyone with information to contact police.’

The man is due to appear in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court on November 18.
