Man ar­rested for al­leged sex­ual of­fenses

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Taipei po­lice ar­rested a male sus­pect for al­legedly pay­ing un­der­age girls in re­turn for sex, the Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Bureau (CIB) has an­nounced.

The sus­pect sur­named Wang was ar­rested at his res­i­dence in Taipei on April 10. He is cur­rently been in­ves­ti­gated by the Taipei Dis­trict Pros­e­cu­tors Of­fice for his al­leged vi­o­la­tion of the Child and Youth Sex­ual Trans­ac­tion Pre­ven­tion Act.

Ac­cord­ing to the CIB, Wang has cre­ated a Face­book page un­der a pseu­do­nym and used the ac­count to send friend re­quests to un­der­age girls, promis­ing them to pay money in ex­change for sex.

Wang then would take the girls in ques­tion to a mo­tel in Taipei City. Af­ter pay­ing th­ese girls for sex, Wang later im­me­di­ately blocked their Face­book ac­counts to dodge re­spon­si­bil­ity.

He has al­legedly been in­volved in such il­licit ac­tiv­i­ties since Dec. 2014 when at least a dozen un­der­age girls had been vic­tim­ized, the CIB said.

Fol­low­ing months of in­ves­ti­ga­tions, Taipei po­lice launched a raid to ar­rest Wang at his home on April 10. Po­lice also con­fis­cated his com­puter and cell­phone dur­ing the raid.

The CIB is call­ing for more vic­tims of Wang’s per­ver­sions to re­port the case to the po­lice to fa­cil­i­tate in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
