An Oklahoma dad got to deliver the justice every dad deserves, when he found out his 15-year-old daughter was the prey of an older sexual predator online.
“The pictures were being sent back and forth, and sexual behavior, or at least sexual acts, virally were occurring,” Del City Police Maj. Jody Suit told KOCO-TV.
Rather than report to the authorities, the family took matters into their own hands, and devised a trap for the online pervert.
Acting as his daughter online, the father invited the man to a sleepover in a tent behind their house. When the man arrived, the daughter was safely inside the house, and a different female family member inhabited the tent.
“Just before he enters the tent, the father and three family members … tackle him and zip tie his hands and feet and hold him until the police get there,” Suit said.
Police don’t recommend taking matters into your own hands, but Suit understood.
“But as a parent, I don’t blame him,” Suit said. “I think it’s your right to protect your children.”
