Winnipeg police say Alberta teen coerced into sharing sexual video

WINNIPEG - A Manitoba man has been arrested on charges of Internet luring involving a teenage boy from the Cochrane area in southern Alberta.

Winnipeg police allege a 53-year-old man posed as a 13-year-old girl online, and coerced the teenage boy into providing sexual videos.

Det. Sgt. Natalie Aitken says police searched a home, seized electronic equipment and contacted authorities in Alberta.

She says the accused has been released on a promise to appear in court and faces charges of possessing child pornography and luring a minor.

She says the Winnipeg man and the alleged victim never met in person.

Aitken says the case is a reminder that Internet luring can happen anywhere, and that parents need to be mindful of what their children are doing online.

"Often times, people think predators are someone who is on the street that our children will run into. Well, with the Internet, we are actually allowing these people within our homes now," she said.
