Listen: Man Released Without Charge By Gardai Following Incident In Naas Involving "Sexual Predator Hunters".

: 10/12/2017 - 10:21

A man has been questioned, and released without charge, by Gardai in Naas following an incident involving a group calling itself "sexual predator hunters".

Members of the group, which is based in Northern Ireland, confronted a man in the town on Tuesday night.

The group allege that its members posed as a 14 year old girl, allege that this man sent explicit messages to this persona, and further allege that the man was attempting to groom a person whom he is alleged to have believed was a 14 year old girl.

The group live-streamed the encounter on social media platforms.

A file in respect of the man, who has not been charged, is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Stephen Breen is Crime Editor at the Irish Sun, and joined Shane Beatty on Kildare Today.
