The Irish Mirror states that a man - who was arrested after allegedly going to meet up with a 14-year-old for sex - was a former member of a "popular Irish band".
The man is believed to have used a false name and exchanged messages on Grindr.
A PSNI spokesman said: “Police arrested a 32-year-old male in the Glengall Street area of Belfast on Tuesday January, 16 on suspicion of attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming and attempted sexual communication with a child. The man was interviewed at Musgrave station before being released on bail pending further police inquiries.”
The man in questioned "asked sexual questions including asking the size of [the boy's] penis," while also stating that they could do stuff in the car.
He also asked if the boy's younger brother - who was 12 - would like to join in.
Both boy's were decoy accounts.
The Irish Independent reported ten days ago that a vigilante group in the north of the country caught a man who intended to have sex with a minor.
The man - who travelled from Dublin to Belfast - had sent the boy a number of messages but the child was in fact an 'adult decoy' set up by the group.
When the group confronted the man, they said that he "assaulted a number of members", as well as yelling for help.
A video of the group confronting him was recorded live and was posted to social media.
