Predatory Cambridge paedophile jailed for 32 years after rape and sexual assault of young girls

A “predatory” and “highly manipulative” Cambridge paedophile who filmed himself raping a young girl and sexually assaulting another has been jailed for 32 years

Kevin Brock, of Cam Causeway, lured dozens more girls into sending him sexual images and videos of themselves by promising them more followers on social media.

He was found to have trawled through hundreds of under-age girls’ profiles on the video sharing platform Tik Tok.

A court heard Brock, 28, abused two girls under the age of 13 in Cambridgeshire in 2021, raping the younger of them on three separate occasions.

Another slightly older girl was groomed over years and sexually assaulted three times. Some of this abuse was also filmed.

His crime emerged in December 2021 when messages were found on one of the girl’s devices by a family member, who called police.

When Brock was arrested, he told police in an interview that he had never touched the girls sexually. He admitted sending the messages to the older girl, but claimed they were not meant in a sexual nature.

When his home was searched, two phones were seized and analysis showed he had 1,401 indecent images and videos of children, including the rape and sexual abuse of the two young girls.

There were 809 category C images or videos, 350 deemed to be in category B and 242 at category A – the most severe.

Brock answered “no comment” in a further interview with police following the discovery of this material.

Investigations by another police force in July last year revealed Brock had targeted another girl under 13 on Tik Tok and asked for sexual images of her in exchange for followers on the video sharing platform.

Brock urged the girl, who lived in Nottinghamshire, to add him on Snapchat before asking for sexual photos of her.

The request for photos progressed to videos of the girl engaging in sexual activity - and Brock threatened to ban her from Snapchat if she did not comply with his demands.

After being arrested, Brock claimed his account must have been hacked and told officers he did not speak to under-age girls but further videos discovered by police on his phone revealed conversations with at least a dozen other under-age girls, who he had also encouraged to engage in sexual activity, and to supply him with photos and videos.

Brock denied all charges against him but later admitted a total of 27 offences, including:

- Three counts of raping a girl under 13
- Engaging in sexual communication with a child
- Two counts of sexually assaulting a girl under 13
- Sexually assaulting a girl under 13 by penetration
- 13 counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity
- Three counts of possessing indecent images of children
- Four counts of making indecent images of children

He was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court today (August 7), where he was handed a total of 32 years in prison.

Sentencing Brock, Judge Rupert Lowe said the offences revealed him to be a “persistent, predatory and highly manipulative paedophile” with a “deep rooted” sexual interest in young girls.

He said the offending was “sexual abuse in the most appalling way” for both girls, adding that Brock “recorded and retained” the footage, no doubt intending to view it later for sexual gratification.

Det Con Charlie Mitton, from Cambridgeshire police’s Child Abuse Investigation and Safeguarding Unit (CAISU), said: “Our thoughts are with the two young girls Brock targeted in the most horrific of ways, and his other victims who were targeted online.

“We are pleased he has now been brought to justice and we hope the sentence imposed gives his victims and their families some closure from this traumatic period in their lives.”

Det Con Mitton said investigations showed Brock would trawl through hundreds of under-age girls’ profiles on Tik Tok, watch them on live streams and send them direct messages promising them hundreds of “likes”, causing their accounts to skyrocket in popularity.

She added: “However, in exchange for these likes, which there was never any evidence he could provide, Brock would ask for sexual images or videos of them. This behaviour is highly manipulative, as vulnerable children are often attached to their social media influence.

“Phones and social media mean children can be vulnerable to those who prey on their innocence and exploit their trust. We would urge parents to speak to their children about online safety and consider exactly who they are communicating with online.

“We would also encourage anyone who believes they may have been subject to similar behaviour by Brock to get in touch. Protecting young people from harm is one of our top priorities and we have specially trained officers who are there to support victims and bring offenders to justice.”
