Another child luring situation in C-K


An Essex man faces child luring charges here in Chatham-Kent.

Earlier in November, Chatham-Kent police say officers from the Internet Child Exploitation Unit opened an investigation in regard to a man attempting to lure a child via social media “for a sexual purpose.”

On Nov. 16, police executed a warrant at the man’s residence, where he was arrested.

A 65-year-old Essex man faces charges.
