A Summerside man has been charged with luring a minor over the Internet.

Terry Irving Foster, 41, was charged on Jan. 9, and will make his first court appearance on Jan. 31. 

Foster has been released on an undertaking while he awaits his court date.

One of the restrictions he’s under is that he have no contact with anyone under the age of 18, unless they are immediate family members.

In provincial court documents, Kensington Police allege Foster used the Internet to lure a minor under section 153 (1) of the Criminal Code of Canada – sexual exploitation of a young person – contrary to section 172.1(1)(A) – luring a minor.

Police allege the incidents occurred in Kensington, between Dec. 6 and 11, 2012.

The court documents indicate the complainant was female.

When contacted Friday, Kensington Police Chief Lewis Sutherland declined to comment on the case.

Sutherland cited the publication ban that has been put in place, which protects the identity of the victim, as his reasoning for declining the request.
