Greek police catch pedophile, 40, who lured boy into van

A 40-year-old man was to face an Athens prosecutor on Tuesday after allegedly luring a 13-year-old boy into a van and sexually molesting him.

According to sources, police seized several blankets, cushions, a fan and lighting from the vehicle, along with snacks and condoms.

The 40-year-old, who made contact with the youth over the Internet, has been charged with the rape of a 14-year-old girl in the recent past, according to police.

A search of the man’s cell phone revealed a video showing another minor being sexually molested.

Members of the police’s cyber crimes squad have also traced a 33-year-old man who is alleged to have convinced minors to send him nude photographs of themselves by claiming to work for a modeling agency based in Argentina.
