Pervert dad snared by paedophile hunters in Sunderland
A dad who shouted “Is it because I’m coloured?” as he was snared by paedophile hunters has been jailed.
Luke Doyley, 30, had thought he was meeting a young teen boy after exchanging sexual chat on gay dating app Grindr.
But unbeknown to Doyley, he had in fact been speaking to members of the undercover organisation Guardians of the North. Armed with a camera, the group were waiting for him instead of the boy at the agreed meeting place in Sunderland.
When confronted Doyley asked them: “Is it because I am coloured?” One member can be heard replying: “No, it is not.”
After a conversation in which Doyley, of Beechwood Way, Aston Clinton, Aylesbury, denied the offences, he was arrested by police, who Guardians had contacted in advance.
Prosecuting, Rachel Masters told Newcastle Crown Doyley had first used a fake profile to talk to “Thomas”, who made it clear he was between 15, on November 26 2017.
Ms Masters said the message read: “Hey babe, how are you?” “Thomas” replied saying “I’m good thank you” and made it clear he was under 16.
