Photo linked to online grooming case made public

3:29 pm on 9 November 2011

Police have released a photo they say was used by a Christchurch man charged last week with sexually exploiting and grooming young men online by posing as a teenage girl.


Cameron Stuart Hore, 27, is accused of using a young woman's photo and the name Sarah Ruddenklau to coerce the men into performing sexual acts via webcam.

It's alleged he contacted them again using another false name, Dan McPherson, to meet them.

Police do not know who the woman in the photo is but say it was used on a Facebook page in the name of Sarah Ruddenklau.

They are appealing to the public for any information about the identity of the woman.

Mr Hore is due to appear in court on 22 November.
