A Whitby man is in custody after an investigation into the sexual luring of a 14-year-old girl through Facebook messenger.

Durham Police’s Internet Child Exploitation Unit arrested Jordan Hill, 33, on Wednesday after an investigation into sexual luring between February and March.

An analysis of the suspect’s phone confirmed that during that period he requested sexually explicit photos and inappropriate physical contact from the teenager. Further investigation revealed the possibility of other victims.

Hill is charged with numerous offences, including luring a child under 16 to possess child pornography, to make child pornography and for sexual interference, possession of child pornography and making sexually explicit material available for a child.

He was held for a bail hearing.

Police have concerns there may be other victims and are requesting anyone with information to come forward to investigators.

Anyone who has been victimized by the accused or has information about this or similar incidents is asked to contact D/Cst. Pogson of the Major Crime Internet Child Exploitation Unit at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5544.

Anonymous information can be sent to Durham Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.durhamregionalcrimestoppers.ca. Tipsters may be eligible for a $2,000 cash reward.
