Police arrest man as they investigate YouTube videos showing ‘pick up artist’ talking to women in the street and trying to take them home

  • Scottish police have arrested a 37-year-old man over online videos
  • In disturbing videos a man secretly films himself pestering women to talk 
  • The videos also claim to coach men on how to ‘interact with hot women’ 

Police have arrested a man following an investigation into YouTube videos showing young women being followed and asked for sex in public.  

The 37-year-old man was being quizzed by police after widespread outcry when the videos emerged teaching men how to pick up women.

Viewers were urged to ‘master your masculine qualities’, and received coaching on how to ‘interact with hot girls’ on social media.

Shocking footage showed a man approaching and following unsuspecting women in shopping centres, nightclubs and on the streets of Glasgow.

The videos were previously described as ‘shameful and unacceptable’ by cops.

A 37-year-old man has been arrested by police after posting videos on YouTube teaching men how to pick up women 

The arrest follows the publication of a BBC The Social video exploring ‘pick-up artist’ Adnan Ahmad’s online videos. 

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: ‘A 37-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an ongoing inquiry into videos posted online.’

The force previously said: ‘We are aware of the videos posted online, offering advice and guidance on how to ‘pick up’ the opposite sex, particularly young women.

‘This type of predatory behaviour is shameful and unacceptable and will undoubtedly cause significant fear and alarm. No-one should be subjected to this.

‘We are investigating but our enquiries are at a very early stage.’  

The investigation comes as the YouTuber, who uses the alias A-Game, shared videos attempting to bed random members of the public using flirting techniques shown on the YouTube channel.  

A spokesman for Fife College said: ‘We are aware of the offensive online material and has been undertaking an investigation in accordance with its Student Disciplinary Procedure. 

‘As that investigation is underway, it would be inappropriate for us to comment on the specific case at this time. Fife College is committed to promoting positive behaviour amongst its students and we have a very clear policy that sets out our expectations of our students. 

‘The College will take appropriate action against any student who uses abusive language or behaves in a sexually offensive manner.’ 

An Abertay University spokesman said it was aware of the police investigation but declined to comment.
