A nurse was one of the two dozen men who were arrested for allegedly using social media to lure underage boys and girls, aged 14 and 15, for sexual activity.

The names and some personal information about the 24 men were released by the Attorney General’s Office on Tuesday.

It included the Filipino who was identified as 29-year-old Christopher Vargas, a registered nurse from Toms River, New Jersey, reported ABS-CBN News.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said that 24 men were arrested as part of their operation called “Open House”. The suspects thought that they will be meeting the teenagers they have been talking to on social media by going to their homes for sex, only to find out that their supposed victims are undercover agents.

Vargas, who believed that he was talking to a 15-year-old boy, will be facing charges for trying to lure the child with a purpose to commit a criminal offense against the child, the report stated.

The same source also noted that the Filipino suspect has been released awaiting a trial with monitoring conditions.

Grewal also sent out a warning to child predators that authorities are on social media too. He also reminded parents to continually guide their children whenever they use the internet.
