GATINEAU–Gatineau Police continue to investigate a case of child sexual assault and child pornography, after detectives recovered nearly 10,000 images, and 400 videos of an explicit nature involving children.

Police began an investigation on a complaint involving a young girl who’d told her mother a man had touched her inappropriately.

The parent contacted police, who made an arrest Thursday, November 9.

A search of the suspect’s home turned up the images and videos and, according to police, some of the images were of the victim.

Police believe the incidents had occured over a year.

A 46-year old man remains in custody on charges of sexual contact, production and possession of child pornography, and making explicit material available to a child.

The investigation is continuing and more charges could be filed, police said.
