Winnipeg police have charged a man after he allegedly attempted to lure a child online.

The Internet Child Exploitation Unit began investigating on June 25 regarding a child under the age of 14 being lured.

A 29-year-old Winnipeg man was posed as a 14-year-old boy and had been communicating with the victim for approximately a month before the victim’s persons learned of the conversation.

Kenneth Dale Emerson was arrested on Tuesday following an undercover investigation.

He has been charged with two counts of adult luring a person under 16 by means of telecommunication.

He has been released on a promise to appear.
