Calgary police have arrested a man for allegedly defrauding a woman he met on a dating website.

Police say in March, a man convinced a woman to give him cash in exchange for a cheque for $550.

The woman was later alerted by her bank that it came back as non-sufficient funds, and she never heard from the man again.

Police received similar complaints through unidentified tips that women were approached by a man they met through online dating websites and solicited for money.

Dallon Kyle Johnstone, who is 28, is charged with fraud under $5,000.

Investigators are looking to speak to anyone who may have more information.

Police also are thanking the media and the public for assisting in the arrest.
