(ABC 6 NEWS) - An undercover investigation led Rochester Police to an arrest of a potential online predator.

Police arrested Anthony King by using a fake profile on website called Tagged.com. Police say an undercover officer posed as a 15-year-old girl and was immediately approached by King, who is 43-years-old.

Over a week long period the officer maintained a relationship with King, who they say, eventually sent sexual text messages and nude photos.

The officer posing as the 15-year-old eventually arranged to meet the man at a public location in Rochester on Thursday for sexual purposes.

A team of officers was instead waiting for him.

According to police it was very clear that King knew he was supposed to meet up with a 15-year-old girl.

This was the first time Rochester Police have done an investigation of this nature. They say they are only scratching the surface of the issue.
