SICK TIPS ON HOW TO SNATCH A KID... Cops in­ves­ti­gate as pae­dophile guide found on­line

The People - - NEWS & FEATURES - By Scott Hes­keth and Nick Dor­man

A SICK how-to guide for pae­dophiles is be­ing probed by in­ves­ti­ga­tors in Bri­tain’s FBI”.

The Na­tional Crime Agency is study­ing the depraved child abuse man­ual – which was dis­cov­ered by the Sun­day Peo­ple.

It details how to groom chil­dren and even sug­gests meth­ods that could be used to cap­ture young­sters off a street. We were alerted to the 270,000-word doc­u­ment, which is be­ing distributed on the Dark Web – a part of the in­ter­net which can only be ac­cessed with spe­cial soft­ware.

A source said: “The con­tents of this guide are depraved. “It is like an A to Z of pae­dophilia.” The 28 chap­ters tell child-sex fiends how to find and be­friend young­sters and go into stom­ach-churn­ing de­tail on abuse. The guide highlights the po­ten­tial vul­ner­a­bil­ity of sin­gle moth­ers and chil­dren who have spe­cial needs.

The au­thor says: “My first and very best rec­om­men­da­tion for find­ing chil­dren is to find and en­gage in ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ships with sin­gle mums.”

Possessing pae­dophile man­u­als was out­lawed last year, with of­fend­ers fac­ing up to three and a half years in pri­son. A Crime Agency spokesman said: “We know child- sex of­fend­ers en­gage with like­minded in­di­vid­u­als and the in­ter­net al­lows them to com­mu­ni­cate.

“We will con­tinue to work with our part­ners, shar­ing in­tel­li­gence and in­for­ma­tion to iden­tify, lo­cate and ar­rest those who pose a risk to chil­dren.”
