PHOENIX, Az. –  19-year-old is facing multiple charges after police say he took advantage of a little girl.

Stephen Nelson, 19, of Phoenix, is facing charges of molestation and sexual exploitation after police say he claimed the 4-year-old victim “had a crush on him,” according to KPHO.

The police report states that the victim’s father called police after he caught Nelson in his daughter’s room.

“The victim stood up and her pants were around her ankles,” the arresting officer wrote in the report to KPHO.

The 4-year-old told her father in private that Nelson had taken photographs of her private parts, and inappropriately touched her.

After the victim’s father divulged the information to authorities, officers obtained a search warrant and found Nelson’s camera.

Nelson has been arrested and is facing charges of sexual conduct with a minor, sexual exploitation of a minor and molestation of a child, according to KPHO.
