Man in Goes possibly abused by pedo hunters

A man who was injured yesterday in an assault in Goes may have fallen victim to paedo hunters. These are people who go on their own to look for men or women who would want to have sex with minors.

According to the police, the man was beaten up at 8:20 p.m., presumably by a group of young people. He had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. It is not known how he is doing, reports Omroep Zeeland.

Several witnesses have told the police that the man was abused by pedo hunters.

It happened at least 250 times over the past few months that “pedo hunters” went looking for someone who would have met a minor. The police and the prosecutors office are not happy about it. “The situation is rapidly escalating and does not lead to a solution to the problem,” said a spokesperson for the D.A. earlier. Justice hopes that serious suspicions of child abuse will be passed on to the police.

A few days ago, the people reported that the death of a 73-year-old man from Arnhem was the result of a pedo hunt.

Further research is being carried out into what happened in Goes.
