City police arrested a Bowling Green man Monday on suspicion of attempting to engage a minor in sexual activity.

The Bowling Green Police Department said officers received a tip that Cody Austin Edwards, 24, had been using an online app to initiate chats with other users in order to seek children to engage in sex acts.

Edwards was arrested on a charge of prohibited use of electronic communication systems to procure a minor.

He was due to appear Tuesday in Warren District Court for arraignment.
