Sexual Predator Hunters in Rochester
According to their website, Predator Hunters USA is a group of volunteers that work together to expose online sexual predators and inform communities about threats. KARE-11 did a news piece on a guy named Josh from Forest Lake who leads the organization. The team sets up profiles posing as teenage girls on dating apps. Once contacted by a potential predator, Josh goes out to meet these men that think they're meeting with young girls and streams the interaction online.
The Predator Hunters were recently in Rochester for one of these stings. In their most recent FB live video they allege the 49-year-old man was there to meet a young girl at Wild Bill's. The group says the information they've collected will be turned over to law enforcement. At this time no criminal charges have been filed.
