According to reports, OPD investigators learned of suspect Boris Rubio, 28, of Memphis and an investigation was conducted.

Rubio was subsequently arrested without incident and was transported to the Lafayette County Detention Center where he was given a bond of $50,000 by a Justice Court Judge.

While no other details surrounding the incident leading to Rubio’s arrest, the OPD said in a press release Friday afternoon that the department was committed to working on keeping children safe from predators.

“OPD would also like to remind parents to know about their children’s social media activity and to teach their kids the dangers of strangers online,” the press release stated.

It is the third arrest of its kind in as many weeks by OPD.
