Rapist used ‘tricks from psychology class to lure kids through video games’

A psychology student used tricks from class to manipulate his victims, allegedly going on to sexually abuse 300 children and adolescents.

The unnamed 26-year-old suspect, from Foz do Iguacu, in the state of Parana, Brazil, was found to have more than 1,700 sickening files on his electronic devices.

More than 350 files were allegedly produced by the suspect himself and are said to show him brutally raping children.

Police said he used techniques learned in his university psychology classes to manipulate his victims.

Police said the sicko's crimes include child rape, virtual child rape, the production, storage, and sharing of child pornography, and enticing children to engage in lewd acts.

A statement continued: "In addition to the actual rapes, the man engaged in virtual child rapes.

"For this purpose, he maintained multiple fake profiles on the internet, which he used to lure children.

"Through video calls, he coerced the victims into performing sexual acts alone and with objects.

"Everything was recorded, including showing the abuser's face and reactions."

The Chief of the Cybercrime Combat Unit at PCPR, Jose Barreto, said that the man would lure children through virtual games.

He said: "He would offer virtual coins, prizes, and gifts to children in exchange for sending photos or engaging in sexual acts.

"The moment a child performs any sexual act or appears naked, it already constitutes a crime."

Barreto also said that the suspect had created a "fake female profile to gain the trust of children".

The police said that some of the files dated back as far as 2016.

Barreto explained: "The man had books on understanding children's verbal behaviour.

"With his psychologist's knowledge, he would have found it easy to entice children to engage in lewd acts."

Police said the next step is "to identify the children who are victims, as all of them need to be treated."
