CALGARY — Police have charged a Calgary man they say lured and manipulated a 14-year-old girl into a four-month sexual relationship with him.

Satinderjit Mangat, 37, is accused of creating a fake Facebook profile of a teenage girl and using it to befriend the victim.

Through this account, the victim was introduced to the man -- who used the online alias Sam Pat -- in August of 2013, said Staff Sgt. John Guigon with the Southern Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit.

From there, the victim is alleged to have started meeting the man in person and eventually their relationship escalated to multiple sexual encounters -- “every sort you could imagine” -- each week, said Guigon.

There was an “emotional connection” made with the girl “to lower her inhibitions,” he said.
