A man convicted of sexually abusing and grooming several girls, including a 12-year-old girl from Surrey, British Columbia, has been sentenced to 32 years behind bars in England.
Kevin Brock, 29, was arrested in the British city of Cambridge in February and sentenced last month for offenses including sexual communication with children, rape, sexual assault, possession of indecent images of children and charges related to sexual harassment in line, according a news report in the Cambridge Independent.
Investigators examined Brock’s electronic devices and discovered child sexual abuse materials, as well as evidence of contact with hundreds of underage girls through TikTok and Snapchat, police say.
Surrey RCMP say they were contacted by Cambridgeshire Police in April and helped identify a local victim whom Brock had groomed and encouraged to engage in sexual activity.
“Online sexual exploitation is a crime without borders,” said RCMP Sgt.
Rochelle Kokkoris said in a press release.
“Surrey RCMP is committed to working with international law enforcement partners to investigate these crimes and help ensure young people are protected online.
The Mounties say Brock’s crimes included practical crimes against two children in the United Kingdom.
