Ms Crockett, 21, invited Abu Sin to one of her split screen chats during one of her broadcasts – known as "guesting".She said: “I guested this kid – I don’t know what he’s saying because I don’t speak Arabic, [but] everyone thought he was really funny, and everyone liked him, and I guess this video went viral.“He didn’t speak much English, so I was trying to get him to understand what I was saying most of the time; it wasn’t that good communication.“He was dancing and being funny, we would both dance on there because we can’t communicate with words.Videos of the pair communicating with one another and dancing to each other were then uploaded onto You Tube where they gained thousands of followers.The language barrier between the pair was apparent but interaction between them was a hit with viewers.To establish a good relationship with a child and the child's family, child groomers might do several things: They might try to gain the child's or parents' trust by befriending them, with the goal of easy access to the child.Child groomers might look for opportunities to have time alone with the child, which can be done by offering to babysit; the groomers may also invite the child for sleepovers, for opportunistic bed sharing.
The humorous clips show Abu Sin and Christina, 21, chatting from their homes in California and Saudi Arabia, battling language differences between English and Arabic and jokingly declaring their love for one another.
In one video, he tells Christina he was 20 before she replies sceptically: “But you’re only 13”.
Neither Christina, a beauty and lifestyle vlogger, or You Now have commented on the arrest.
The proscribed traffic was international in nature at that time.
The concept of localised grooming, in which gangs groom neighbourhood victims, was defined in 2010 by the UK Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.
