Elizabeth police have arrested and charged a man with procuring three children via Facebook and making threats to kill.

According to SAPOL, between August 2017 and January 2018 the man used FB to contact three children aged 14 with the intention of making them amenable to sexual activity.

Police also allege that in January 2018 the man obtained the mobile phone number of one child and made phone calls threatening to kill that person.

A 29-year-old Northfield man has been refused police bail and is expected to appear in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court today.
