‘Pedophile shared clip of himself sexually abusing animal on Facebook’ – Metro.co.uk
A 40 year-old pedophile uploaded child sex abuse images to Facebook, and also shared clips of himself sexually abusing an animal, it is claimed. Mostafa Rasheed was arrested on Wednesday over claims he uploaded images of a girl aged between five and 10 being raped and exposed to his social media page.
Rahseed, from Baton Rouge in Louisiana, is also said to have uploaded four images of himself sexually abusing an animal. Officials have yet to say what kind of an animal was featured in the abuse material.
The alleged pedophile was arrested nearly nine months after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip about the suspect possessing child sex abuse images in early March.
An agent there watched the clip, and confirmed that it featured the sexual abuse of a child, WBRZ reported. A mother afterwards, the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation’s Cyber Crime Unit requested a search warrant to further investigate the IP address belonging to Rasheed’s computer.
That was granted in August, with agents discovering four videos of animals being sexually abused on the account. Rasheed faces three felony counts of pornography involving juveniles, and four felony counts of sexual abuse of an animal.
He is being held in jail ahead of his next court appearance.
