Memphis man arrested for enticement of a minor

A Memphis man is in custody following an investigation into his relationship with a minor.

Investigators with the Oxford Police Department were recently made aware of Boris Rubio, 28, and began an investigation. On Jan. 17, Rubio was arrested for enticement of a minor for sexual purposes without incident and taken to the Lafayette County Detention Center, where he was given a bond of $50,000.

“The Oxford Police Department is committed to working on keeping our children safe from predators,” A statement from OPD read. “OPD would like to remind parents to know about their children’s social media activity and to teach their kids the dangers of strangers online.”

The public is asked to contact the National Human Trafficking Hotline by calling 1-888-373-7888 or contact their local law enforcement agency if they know or suspect anyone being trafficked.
