Toronto Police Det. Scott McQuoid announced on Monday an arrest in a child exploitation investigation where police believe there may be more victims.

A 57-year-old man was charged with a number of offences including making, accessing and possessing child pornography.

Police say that a man used social media and email under fake names to lure children into pornography. The man created profiles to make himself appear to be a teenage girl in order to contact other teenage girls.

The investigation was brought on by a complaint and lasted six months.
