The community seems to be fighting back and defeating child sex predator’s lately. Tuesday, we told you about a girl who set up her own sting to catch a predator that had planned to have sex with her, now we’re on to a fearless father who has done the same.
Antoine Martin found inappropriate messages on his 13-year-old daughter’s Facebook page from a 22-year-old man that was planning to meet her at the Boys and Girl’s Club of America in southwest Detroit’s Highland Park, where she regularly went after school, according to Fox Detroit.
He not only managed to ambush the guy, but held him and got him to confess, on video, his intentions to knowingly meet his 13-year-old daughter for sex.
MARTIN: How old is Ariel?
SUSPECT: She’s 13.
MARTIN: And how old is you?
SUSPECT: I’m 22.
Martin did not go into this situation with a hot head by going to the Boys and Girls Club with family members to beat up on the man. He read the Michigan Penal Code for a citizen’s arrest and carried out his plan by the book, so his efforts would not be in vain. He wanted to be sure that this man would be arrested and the video confession accepted.
On the video, Martin went further with his examination of the suspect saying:
MARTIN: “Tell me why you came here today? Tell the truth.”
SUSPECT: I came here because I thought Ariel wanted to be my girlfriend. So I came here to spend time with her.
MARTIN: And do what?
SUSPECT: And to have sex with her.
SUSPECT: I do not want this to go onto the Boys and Girls Club. I do not want this to go public, man. I’m sorry. I swear to God I’m sorry.
A spokesman for the Boys and Girls Club of Southeastern Michigan said the the man has not volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club of America in approximately three years, but Martin was given the impression that the man still worked at the Highland Park location.
BRAVO ANTOINE MARTIN! The city should honor you today! We do! Watch the report.
