An Abbotsford man accused of posing online as a 15-year-old boy and sharing pornographic images with a 12-year-old girl in Utah has been charged.

Robert Madison Koenig, 22, was arrested last Thursday. A search warrant was then executed on his Abbotsford residence, and Koenig was subsequently charged with child luring and exposing a child to sexually explicit material.

Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the investigation began in December 2014 after the parents of the girl in Utah found pornographic images and online correspondence from an alleged teen boy from Vancouver.

The initial investigation indicated that the suspect was actually a man from Abbotsford, and the major crime unit of the Abbotsford Police Department became involved.

MacDonald said the investigation is continuing, and electronics seized from the home will be forensically examined.

Koenig is listed online as the 2014-15 roster for University of the Fraser Valley’s men’s volleyball team and as a former graduate of Mennonite Educational Institute.

He has been released from custody on court conditions that prohibit contact with anyone under 16 years of age.

Koenig is also not permitted to be in parks, playgrounds, recreation centres or places that a person under the age of 16 might be expected to be present, and he is prohibited from using a computer to access pornography of any kind.
