An 82-year-old Tillsonburg man has been arrested in Florida on child-luring charges.

Jackson county police say the Ontario man has been charged with stalking and attempting to lure a young child.

Sergeant Shane Tipton of the county sheriff's office, says police were called to investigate suspicious behaviour and an investigation determined that the man was allegedly trying to lure a nine-year-old boy.

Tipton says police aren't yet sure why the man was in Florida, and they're trying to determine whether the accused knew the child, or if the boy was chosen at random.

Officials with the county jail say Arthur Williams was charged with loitering and prowling, trespassing, aggravated stalking, making a threatening phone call, and attempting to lure a child under the age of 12.
