Mounties in Fort Saskatchewan have charged a 37-year-old Edmonton man for allegedly attempting to lure a child on social media.

RCMP began investigating after receiving a complaint from a “concerned guardian,” Mounties said in a Monday news release.

“The Fort Saskatchewan RCMP along with the Internet Child Exploitation Unit, conducted an investigation and determined a 37-year-old male attempted to lure a 16-year-old child using social media,” the RCMP said.

The accused and the victim do not know one another.

Raymond Anderson, 37, has been charged with child luring, making sexually explicit material available to a child, making an agreement or arrangement of sexual offence against a child, and failing to comply with probation.

He was released on conditions following a judicial hearing and is set to appear in Fort Saskatchewan provincial court on Nov. 5. Police did not say what conditions he must follow.

The RCMP is also reminding parents to discuss internet and cellphone safety with their children.
