A creepy predator has been thrown in jail for four years after it emerged he was grooming girls as young as eight via social media app TikTok.

Robert Moors, 36, used the China-owned video app to ask one of his two of his victims what underwear she as wearing.

The 12-year-old admitted that they were “Frozen-themed”, and the sick man then asked her to perform sexual acts, Oxford Crown Court heard.

And he even dared the girl to tell her brother to expose his genitals “for five seconds”.

Things took an even more sinister turn when the man, who went under the name Goldeneye0073, moved the conversation to WhatsApp.

A second victim, who was ten when she was contacted on TikTok by Moors, was asked what she was wearing. He suggested she remove her underwear.

The vile messages were discovered when the second girl approached her father 'shaking and crying' and showed him the social media conversation.

Moors was arrested two days later, on December 21 last year, and his mobile phone was seized.

When it was searched by police experts, the phone was found to contain 95 child sex abuse videos in the worst category, which includes depictions of child rape.

There were 75 videos in category B and 65 in category C. The children in the videos were aged between six and 11.

He was interviewed twice and answered no comment to all questions asked.

Jailing him for four years, Judge Michael Gledhill QC said: "You opened TikTok, you browsed through the material that was openly on view and you selected two girls who happened to be eight and 10-years-old.

"You spoke to them directly and you asked them to do sexual things, albeit not the most serious sexual things but we are talking about girls under 10.

"Why were you doing it? For your own sexual gratification.

Gareth James, mitigating, described the case as a troubling one and acknowledged the custody threshold had been passed. His client had no previous convictions and entered his guilty pleas at the first opportunity.

Moors pleaded guilty to inciting a girl under-13 to engage in sexual activity and possession of indecent images of children.

He will be on the sex offender register for life and was made subject to a seven-year sexual harm prevention order designed to limit his unfettered access to children and the internet.
