He had been communicating with this girl on Facebook for quite a while. He had arranged to meet this girl near Platt Fields Park as he had been talking to her online. He didn’t know her and they had never met before. We think this was quite possibly a trap for him. If you are talking to anyone on Facebook and you arrange to meet up with them please be careful and be aware that it could be a trap.

It’s believed the six women are of Somali origin and are all aged between 20-25-years-old. They were described as wearing dark hooded tops.
