Authorities in Grantsville, Utah say that they've made an arrest in the case if a pedophile who lured young girls over Snapchat to meet him so he could take advantage of them and forcefully commit rape.
This case should serve as a warning to parents of children who use social media platforms such as Snapchat to monitor what their children are doing and who they're talking to.
29 Year Old Dakota L. Parker used Snapchat to communicate with the thirteen year old girl conning her into meeting him at his home in Grantsville.
According to court documents the child said that, “he gave her something and she woke up naked the next morning”, unaware of where she was or how she arrived there.
The girl told police that she had chatted with Parker on Snapchat at which time the child's mother then handed over her device to Grantsville City Police Detective Lydon Allred who then checked the Snapchat account records and verified the claims.
The detective then pretended to be the child and contacted Parker wanting to meet again.
Once Parker agreed for a second meeting law enforcement agencies were waiting to take him into custody for his crimes.
Parker has since been charged with rape of a child and sodomy on a child, first-degree felonies; and with sex abuse of a child and two counts of enticing a minor over the internet, each being second-degree felonies.
The child is a West Valley resident, who's in complete shock after what's happened to her from a man who manipulated her trust on the internet.
