Charges have been laid after allegations a Manitoba minor was being lured over the Internet for sexual purposes.

Russell and Rossburn RCMP and the RCMP Internet Child Exploitation Unit were investigating a complaint of indecent text messaging between a man and a youth.

A 49-year-old Winnipeg man was arrested yesterday with the assistance of Winnipeg Police and the RCMP Integrated Tech Crime Unit.

The man is charged with two counts of luring, one count of possession of child pornography, and one count of making child pornography.
