A county Armagh man arrested on suspicion of attempting to meet a child on Friday has been released on police bail.
The 45-year-old man from the Tandragee area was arrested by police in Lisburn yesterday afternoon.
It is understood his arrest follows the circulation of a video posted by self-proclaimed “Child Protection Enforcers” – an online action group.
A police spokesperson confirmed to Armagh I that the man has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
The video, which is almost 30 minutes long, was posted almost 24 hours ago and has since been shared 5,500 times, amassing in excess of 270,000 views.
The man was originally arrested in Lisburn on suspicion of attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming and attempting sexual communication with a child.
Police inquiries are currently ongoing.
