Pervert faints at police station after he is caught trying to meet a child at a KFC

THIS is the moment a paedophile faints at a police station after he is caught trying to meet a child at a KFC.

Teaching assistant Steven Johnson was messaging an undercover cop posing as a 14-year-old boy.

His crimes and arrest were captured as part of Channel 4’s Undercover Police: Hunting Paedophiles.

Johnson messaged the undercover officer saying: “You looking for fun?”

The ‘boy’ replied: “Yeah I am but I’m 14, if I’m too young for you that’s chill.”

Johnson continues to message the ‘boy’ despite knowing he is underage.

He wrote: “We can find quiet place where no one about just w**k and suck.”

The ‘boy’ says he has to be discreet due to his age, and Johnson asks where the two can meet.

The undercover officer suggests KFC, and Johnson agrees.

Cops then follow Johnson to the fast food restaurant to bust him.

Two officers confront Johnson in his car and tell him to get out.

Before he can be handcuffed, Johnson pleads with an officer, saying: “I can’t do this.”

The arresting officers tells Johnson to calm down.

Once arriving at the police station Johnson faints and collapses to the ground.

While being questioned, Johnson holds his head in his hands and begins sobbing.

When asked how old he thought the person he was chatting with was, Johnson replied: “I assumed he was 18.”

He said: “I thought I was chatting to an 18-year-old.

When asked why he thought the boy was 18 when he told him he was 14, Johnson replied: “Maybe… I don’t know.”

Johnson pleaded guilty to arranging a child sex offence and attempted sexual communication with a child, and was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison.
