Authorities identify man seen in disturbing child pornography video that went viral

In a community alert issued Tuesday morning by the Anchorage Police Department, authorities stated, "There is a heinous video being shared on Facebook and other social media platforms involving child sexual abuse".

According to a statement from Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Maria Miller, Germaine Moore is accused of sexually assaulting the children at his mother's home in Detroit and at his home in Alabama. The child from the video was located and is said to be safe, according to investigators.

The video, uploaded and shared online, depicted a young girl that appeared to be between 4 to 6 years of age performing oral sex on an adult male. Jurisdictions in a number of states are also investigating. The abuse happened in both Alabama and Detroit, prosecutors said.

A woman, Tonya Moore, was taken into custody Monday night in connection with the investigation. The video circulated on Facebook and other social media.

Meanwhile, Montgomery police have arrested 42 year old Jerrell Washington for distributing the video.

The child porn video that enraged the country last week is not local and the man seen recording a child performing oral sex on himself surrendered to USA police this morning. "We understand that sharing information sometimes brings a criminal to justice, but sharing amongst Facebook friends is not the way to do it".

According to officers attached to this country's Child Protection Unit, the man identified as Germaine Moore, 44, is now being held at Elmore County Jail after surrendering at 2.30am. Do not share it, as criminal charges may result. He's charged with distribution of a video depicting sexual assault of a child and an additional charge sexual assault of a child. "We do not want the video to keep being shared, making the case harder for Law Enforcement to investigate".

Law enforcement agencies across the country warned viewing and sharing the video is a criminal offense, no matter the intention.
