This is the second such crime in which the victim and attacker met through A 28 year old man was accused of taking sexual pictures of a 13 year old girl he met on the same website.

In Des Moines, Iowa in March, 2009, a 13 year old boy bit 11 classmates. The Des Moines Register reported that the boy bit the classmates over several days. When a classmate reported the attacks, the boy's father claimed the boy didn't mean to
