Sexual predators target children on-line, nothing unusual about that.  But this is new. 

A 10-year-old girl from Plano, was asked to send nude pictures of herself to a boy she met on line playing the video game, Minecraft. 

He claimed to be 12 years old, but the girls' mother discovered that he had a phone number belonging to an out-of-state adult. 

It's a part of Ryan's routine.

"I started playing it around two years ago," 10 year-old Ryan Iglesias said.

Iglesias plays the popular game Minecraft, for a of couple hours a day.

"You start with a stone block and a grass block and you start placing it down by left clicking and you can build anything," Iglesias said.

The game can be played on a console like Xbox or on a computer. You can also switch the game's mode to online or offline.

"I only play offline because my dad tells me whoever I'm talking to could be dangerous," Iglesias said.

If you're playing online, you can communicate with anyone around the world playing the game.

"That is one of the most popular games and it's easy to go in and have a persona," LPD Detective Trent Mcneme said.

It's not just Minecraft. Several games, such as Grand Theft Auto and World of Warcraft also allow users to interact with one another.

"Just as hard as parents work to keep online predators away from their kids, these people are working just has hard to get access to them," Mcneme said.

LPD's Crimes Against Children Unit investigates online sexual predator cases all the time.

"Luckily, most of the time we can be proactive and reactive and stop things before they actually, before they go south," Mcneme said.

The most effective solution is to pay attention.

"Ask your kids questions, who they're talking to. They're a parent for a reason and somebody needs to be in control and help that kids make the right decisions," Mcneme said.

It's better to be safe than sorry.

"They could be just gamers that take your identity and take clues off you and that way they can just come to your house and just rob you or something," Iglesias said.
