Man arrested in Oregon after allegedly grooming 10-year-old girl in online chatroom and flying to America to rape her in hotel

Well, this is deplorable. Crimes like this are where I’m an advocate for cruel and unusual punishment…


A lifeguard at a council leisure centre is behind bars in the United States today after being arrested and charged with the kidnap and rape of a 10-year-old girl he met on the internet.

It’s alleged Gareth Vincent Hall from Wales, flew to Eugene, Oregon, in April where he hired a car and took a 10-year-old schoolgirl to a hotel to carry out a series of shocking sexual offences on her.

Hall, 22, was employed as a lifeguard at the Welsh town of Caernarfon’s Arfon Leisure Centre, where police say he had ‘regular access’ to young children.
