    Authorities in Canada have accused a Justin Bieber impersonator of threatening and sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in New Jersey through a video chat site online.      

    Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says 34-year-old Lee Moir of Toronto, Ontario, posed as the pop star on Facebook.

    Authorities allege he threatened to harm the girl's family to force her to perform sex acts using a video chat site. She complied, and when she stopped talking to Moir, he told her to post the videos to a pornographic website, police said. 

    The incidents were investigated by U.S. law enforcement, who found the man was living in Toronto, police said.

    Authorities say Moir engaged the officer in sexual conversations and requested a meeting. Toronto police arrested him when he arrived at a designated location.     

    He's charged in Canada with luring, manufacturing and possessing child pornography and extortion.     

    It's not clear whether Moir has an attorney.
