London man charged with luring, sex assault involving a minor

LONDON, Ont. -- Police have laid luring and sexual assault charges against a 26-year-old man from London, Ont., after a tip came in over Facebook.

London police allege the suspect communicated with a 15-year-old girl through Facebook Messenger and followed up with face-to-face meetings.

After receiving a tip, officers arrested the man at a home in the city's south end early Thursday.

He's been charged with three counts each of sexual assault, sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching and luring, all involving a minor.

He is due in court in London on May 21 to face the charges.

Police are asking anyone with further information to contact them.
