Police: Canandaigua man attempted to lure teen on social media

Police say a 56-year-old Canandaigua man was taken into custody for attempting to lure a child into sexual acts.

Robert Schaefer, 56, of Canandaigua was arrested on Thursday and charged with attempted criminal sex act.


It’s alleged that he used social media to lure a 14-year-old for the purpose of sexual activity. He instead met an undercover police officer, who was posing as the child online.
