Man charged over online 'pick up' videos

Police have charged a man in connection with videos posted online that showed men trying to pick up women.

The 37-year-old man was arrested following an inquiry into footage of men chatting up members of the opposite sex in the street.

Police Scotland confirmed on Thursday that it was looking into videos on YouTube, featuring what the force described as "predatory behaviour".

The man is expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Monday.

It followed publication of a BBC The Social video exploring "pick-up artist" Adnan Ahmad's online video posts.

On Thursday, police said they were aware of the videos offering advice and guidance on how to pick up the opposite sex, particularly young women.

And they urged anyone with information regarding such individuals to contact them.

Mr Ahmed, known to his YouTube followers as "Addy Agame", has defended his videos, which he said were nothing more than a "bunch of guys talking to a bunch of girls".
