A paedophile who was being hunted down by authorities has been found and arrested in Northern Ireland.

The 29-year-old, who was wanted in connection with a number of sexual offences against children, was arrested by the PSNI’s Child Abuse team.

The paedo was previously living and working in Holland before he was found guilty of child sex offences, including rape, in November 2021 and asked to leave the country.

“Working with Interpol, detectives tracked him down in Northern Ireland to arrest him for the outstanding child sexual offences. He remains in custody at this time,” PSNI Detective Chief Inspector, Kerry Brennan said.

“As a Police Service, safeguarding children and bringing offenders of these crimes to justice remains a top priority.”

“Those who seek to harm children in this way in Northern Ireland should be fearful of the consequence of their actions.”

“Anyone concerned that a child may be being groomed or at risk of sexual exploitation or abuse, please contact police on 101, or in an emergency always dial 999.”
