Klaus Hicker

Police Region 5 reported that they had had Hicker under surveillance for some time before the arrest as they suspected that he had been luring 12-15 year old homeless children back to his house and sexually assaulting them. The surveillance also revealed that the co-accused, Tip, had been using his tuk-tuk to pick up boys and take them back to the house.

Police also seized two computers during the arrest. 

CityNews spoke to a foreign man who lived in the same neighbourhood as Hicker who said, “[Hicker] always kept himself to himself, but he was pretty well known for liking young boys. People will probably be surprised this hadn’t happened earlier.” The man added that Hicker was part-owner of the Yum Boi Boi bar in Santitum Plaza.

He was also known to have websites, said the source, some of which have photographic content of young scantily-clad Asian boys. CityNews has seen the sites though cannot reveal the URL. Much of the content is photographs of young boys dressed only in shorts or underwear. The source told CityNews, “He was nicknamed Klaus Dracula due to his unkempt appearance and odd looks.”

The source added that Hicker was fond of drinking at the CU Bar in the Night Bazaar, “An area with a reputation for underage boys,” he said.
