Winnipeg Police Service Media Release
For Immediate Release

Internet Child Luring – Arrest: R19-44954


On June 7, 2019, an online gaming company contacted the Winnipeg Police Service to report that a suspect in Winnipeg was requesting nude images from minors and offering nude images to minors. No identification of the online victims was available.

Investigators from the Winnipeg Police Service Internet Exploitation Unit initiated an undercover online investigation using a profile of a 13-year-old. This investigation involved the suspect entering into a conversation with an undercover officer on social media.

The suspect sent numerous nude images and a video, and requested nude images from the undercover officer. The officer stated numerous times that they were only 13 years old. Eventually, the accused asked the officer, portraying a 13-year-old, to perform sex acts should they actually meet.

On October 7, 2019, investigators obtained and executed a search warrant on a residence in Winnipeg and arrested a suspect.

Kyle William MARCINKOWSKI, 22, has now been charged with:
- Luring a Person Under 16 Years of age by Means of Telecommunication x 2
- Luring a Person Under 18 Years of age by Means of Telecommunication
- Transmit Sexually Explicit Material to a Child x 3
- Possession of Child Pornography

He was detained in custody. 

The investigation has led officers to believe that there may be unidentified victims. If you are aware of a potential victim or have information that may assist investigators please contact police at 204-986-6172.

Citizens are encouraged to report concerns if someone they know may be victimizing children online. For more information on addressing child victimization or to report concerns visit Canada's national tip line at Cybertip.ca.
