Paedophile who posed as a girl on Facebook groomed a child on a My Little Pony chat room before abducting her and sexually abusing her

A paedophile who posed as a girl on Facebook groomed a 12 year old girl on a My Little Pony chat room before abducting her and sexually abusing her – AFTER he had been arrested and bailed by police.

Bradley Fuller ‘took advantage of an impressionable young girl for his own perverted gratification’, officers said.

He targeted the child in an online forum – which she used to talk about My Little Pony – before messaging her on Facebook and via text.

Fuller, 24, used a bogus social media profile with a female picture and name.

He was arrested after one of the 12 year old girl’s friends raised the alarm, before being released pending further investigations.

Police said that while on bail, Fuller arranged to meet the girl before taking her to a hotel where he sexually abused her.

Fuller, of Beacon Road in Romiley, Stockport, has now been jailed for four years.

He pleaded guilty to:

  • Abducting a child;

  • Causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity;

  • Two counts of making indecent images of a child;

  • Two counts of sexual activity with a child at Stoke Crown Court.

Fuller will be on the sex offender register for life.

Police said Fuller’s conversations with the girl came to the attention of a police force in the south after one of the child’s friends saw the messages and informed her school’s safeguarding officer.

Fuller was arrested in May 2018 and his phone was confiscated.

It was later found to contain sexually explicit messages and images.
