Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

Two men were ar­rested last week for com­mu­ni­cat­ing with mi­nors over the in­ter­net and one is also ac­cused of sex­ual con­tact with a mi­nor. The most re­cent ar­rest was of a 32 year-old Ma­gog man who ap­proached seven young girls on Face­book, pre­tend­ing to need a babysit­ter or a house cleaner for his home on chemin Ruis­seau Rouge. Four of the girls re­fused to go the man’s home but three others did. One of those was a vic­tim of sex­ual con­tact on April 16th.

Fol­low­ing the com­plaint to the po­lice, the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog be­gan an in­ves­ti­ga­tion and the sus­pect, Fred­eric Beau­doin, was soon ar­rested.

The first ar­rest took place on April 23rd, also in Ma­gog, af­ter a 35 year-old woman, pre­tend­ing to be a four­teen year-old, set a trap for a 25 year-old man on so­cial me­dia. The woman was con­tacted by the man who asked for acts of a sex­ual na­ture. She agreed to meet with him on Saint Pa­trice East, then told the po­lice of the meet­ing. The po­lice ar­rived at the site and ar­rested Carl Champigny, of Sher­brooke. He was ac­cused of try­ing to com­mu­ni­cate with a mi­nor with plans to com­mit a crime and pos­ses­sion of a banned weapon, in this case a Taser.
