Ottawa Man Charged with Child Luring

An Ottawa man is facing charges following a child luring investigation by the Ottawa Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit.

Police say the man contacted an officer posing as a 14 year old girl on a social media site, and the man allegedly made arrangements to meet with "the young girl" for a sexual encounter.

They say they arrested the man at the location where he expected to meet the girl.

20 year old Matthieu Martel faces charges including two counts of computer contact with a person under 18 years of age, one count of computer contact with a person under 16 years of age for a sexual purpose, and one count of breach of probation.

He is scheduled to appear in court later today.
