This is a story from back in October that has been ongoing since March.
38-year-old Bryan Leslie Pringle of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, has been charged with allegedly soliciting two 10-year-old girls from St. Paul, Minnesota, over the music and video sharing app Musical.ly.
The girls say Pringle would ask them to send him nude pictures of themselves and videos at least five times over several days.
The girls say they sent some pictures.
The victims say Pringle told them he wanted to meet them at a hotel and have sex with them.
I’ve never seen an app used to try to groom kids this young. Even during the MySpace heydays I wasn’t posting stories about 6-10-year-old kids being preyed upon. This is not an app to let your child be using unattended.
