Chelsea man facing four charges of 'online child sexual grooming' offences


A MAN from Chelsea has been charged with child sex grooming offences after allegedly communicating with 'who he believed was a 13-year-old girl' over several weeks.

Jacob Kolster, 63, from Redcliffe Square, Chelsea, west London (above), appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court today to face four charges alleged to have taken place between April 5 and June 22 this year.

The charges are that between those dates he:

*Tried to arrange sexual activity with the child in London

*Tried to cause a child aged 13 to look at an image of a person engaging in sexual activity

*Graphically described sex acts with the child over social media

*Tried to incite the girl to carry out a sex act on her self.

Kolster today pleaded not guilty to all four charges and he was remanded into custody ahead of the next hearing at Isleworth Crown Court next month.
