A 42 year old Nicosia resident is under arrest as police investigate a case of sexual abuse of a child, sexual exploitation of a child, grooming and acquiring child pornography.
Police said the man was arrested after the father of a 13 year old boy filed a complaint that his son had sent photographs and a video posing nude to an unknown man.
The father said that in recent months his son had been in chatting on social media with a man who had introduced himself as a photographer and asked the teen to send him photos and videos.
Investigations by the cyber crime unit led to testimony against a 42 year old Nicosia resident who was arrested on Sunday afternoon. His mobile telephone was sent for forensic tests.
Police then searched his home where they found and took away for examination one computer, a hard disc, a USB and three memory cards.
