DETROIT, March 29 (UPI) -- A warrant alleges a Michigan man used a live Internet chat function in the Xbox 360 video game system to lure underage girls into sexual situations.

Saline, Mich., Police Detective Don Lupi said Robert Lynch, 20, is expected to surrender to authorities for arraignment on three counts of attempting to accost children for immoral purposes, The Detroit News reported Tuesday.

Lynch allegedly made sexual suggestions and mailed condoms to several Saline Middle School girls he met online between Jan. 8 and Feb. 8, police said.

While Lynch never had sex with any of the 11- to 14-year-old girls he did arrange to meet several, the News said.

On one occasion, he allegedly drove two girls to an Ypsilanti, Mich., strip club. The girls didn't enter, police said, but Lynch allegedly purchased sex toys for them at the club.
