Red Deer RCMP investigate

A Red Deer man is facing charges for allegedly luring a 15-year-old child and sexual assault.

Red Deer RCMP said a 30-year-old man was investigated after police received a complaint from a concerned parent.

A specialized Red Deer RCMP Sex Crime Unit executed a search warrant and arrested the suspect on July 31.

Red Deer RCMP encourages parents and guardians to discuss internet and cellphone safety with their children. Parents can find information on how to keep their children safe at www.getcybersafe.gc.ca under ‘Protect Yourself’.

Created in July, the Red Deer Sex Crime Unit works collaboratively with a number of local agencies to provide victim-focused service to survivors of sexual violence. For more information about the unit and its partners, visit www.reddeer.ca/rcmp.

Brandon Conlin is charged with the sexual interference, sexual assault, possession of child pornography, and luring a child.

Conlin will remain in custody until his next court appearance on Sept. 14.
