Killeen Police Arrest Four Men During Online Predator Sting

Killeen, TX (May 23, 2023):  Members of the Killeen Police Department Criminal Investigation Division with the assistance of the Texas Department of Public Safety, worked a special detail, Operation Save Our Youth, targeting online predators.  Detectives posed as underage teens on various social media platforms and were contacted by the suspects.

The goal of the operation was to decrease the number of cases received for minors being exploited and victimized by adults while using internet applications. The department took a proactive approach to prevent any more juveniles from being victims of sexual assault or potentially being a victim of human trafficking.

The four men, 32-year-old John Alexander Caruth of Killeen, 22-year-old Stephan McArthur Wilson of Fort Cavazos, 23-year-old Nirajan Oli of California and 52- year-old Allen Julius Sistrunk Jr. of Harker Heights, were charged with solicitation of a minor. 

The Killeen Police Department would like to remind parents to be cautious of these social media apps and monitor their children’s online activity.
