A man has been arrested after being accused of sexually abusing at least 15 children in Spain.

It is claimed the 24-year-old encouraged children to engage with him online by using threads about gaming, according to The Local.

It is alleged that he would then ask them to visit him, telling the children they would be able to play games and smoke hookah pipes.

A police report claims that he would then ask the children to touch him for money, often between €100 (£89) and €400 (£355).

It also alleges that he would ask the minors to take intimate photos of themselves and perform sexual acts for payment.

Police were first informed about the alleged abuse by the father of a 16-year-old boy who claimed the man had been treating him in this way for more than a year.

Authorities then identified 14 others who have been allegedly abused by the man, all of whom are boys.

Police are currently investigating the man's phone and believe there may be others who have been allegedly abused by the 24-year-old.

He is currently being held in custody and has previously been convicted for molesting children.
