Facebook Tips Off Winnipeg Police to Luring Suspect

A tip from Facebook led Winnipeg police to arrest a 25-year-old man for alleged Internet luring and other offences.

Police say between July 14 and July 30, 2012, the man made contact with a 13-year-old girl over the social networking site and engaged in a sexual conversation. The two agreed to meet, at which time the youth was sexually assaulted.

Facebook Law Enforcement Relations contacted police in July regarding inappropriate activity involving two accounts.

The 25-year-old suspect is charged with sexual assault, sexual interference, and luring. He was released on a promise to appear.
