The video, which is almost 30 minutes long, was posted this morning and has since been shared 3,500 times, amassing in excess of 125,000 views.
A police spokesperson confirmed the arrest to Armagh I.
She said: “Police in Lisburn arrested a 45-year old man in the city earlier today on suspicion of attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming and attempting sexual communication with a child.
“The man is currently assisting police with their enquiries.”
