The 26-year-old Manchester man charged with distributing child pornography is to appear in court today.

Sikomi Bennett of Bartley Town in Comfort is accused of capturing and circulating sexual images of a minor with whom he reportedly had a relationship.

According to the police, Bennett, claiming that the teen had been unfaithful to him, allegedly bound her hands and feet and forced her to perform grievous sexual acts while he videotaped her.

The police say a copy of the footage will be sent to the cyber crimes unit today.

Bennett is currently on bail for two other crimes committed in 2015.

He is accused of shooting a female in the thigh and assaulting another with a gun.

The police say they will be relentless in their efforts to arrest people breaching the Child Pornography Prevention Act.
