A Brantford man is facing multiple child pornography charges, including making child pornography.
The 29-year-old is alleged to have contacted witnesses via a social networking website and invited them through e-mail to commit explicit sexual acts with him upon his fictitious three and 10-year-old sons.
The Brantford Police Service executed a search warrant at a Market Street residence on Thursday after an ongoing multi-jurisdictional investigation. Computers and computer equipment were seized during the investigation.
The accused attempted to flee the residence and resisted arrest, which led to minor injuries to the arresting officer.
The investigation is continuing with the forensic examination of seized computer equipment.
City police worked with the York Regional Police Service and Waterloo Regional Police Service to execute the search warrant.
Charles Daniel Wray, 29, of Market Street, is charged with possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography, two counts of making child pornography and assaulting a police officer. He is being held in custody for a bail hearing.
Anyone with information regarding child pornography offences in Brantford is asked to contact Det. Steven Bebee of the Brantford Police Service vice unit at 519-756-0113 ext. 2207.
