A man in his 30s was arrested on charges of forcibly molesting an elementary school student who was alone in the house while disguised as a delivery driver.

As a result of the police investigation, it was found that another man informed the subject and method of the crime in a random chat app that chats anonymously.

Patrol cars enter the residential area one by one.

A few minutes later, a man caught by the police gets into a patrol car.

A 30-year-old man, B, broke into a house in Seoul on the afternoon of February 15 and forcibly molested elementary school student A, who was alone in the house.

At that time, it was investigated that B committed the crime after pretending to be a courier to open the door to Miss A.

The police investigating how Mr. B went to the house of Miss A, who had never met him, found a third person.

Mr. B stated that she went there when a 27-year-old woman connected to the police through a random chatting app gave her address saying, 'I am looking for someone to play with a sex crime scene.'

As a result of the investigation, it was revealed that the person who posted this post was a 26-year-old man, C, who was posing as a woman on a chatting app.

It is known that Mr. C even instructed Mr. B to 'pretend to be a courier' while delivering the address of Mr. A.

In response, Mr. C is said to have denied the allegation, saying that he simply posted an address near his home as a joke and did not know that he would actually commit a crime.

However, the police applied for an arrest warrant for the two people, saying that the intention of the crime was suspected, and while Mr. C was recently arrested, the court issued a warrant for Mr. B yesterday.

Contrary to their statements, the police believe that this case may be an imitation crime and are also looking at whether information related to similar incidents has been searched for in the past.
