Man facing more child luring and child pornography charges

Police have laid additional child luring and child pornography charges against an Ottawa man.

Police say the charges relate to the man's online activities.

Investigators say they went through his computer and found pornographic images of youth between the ages of 12 and 16.

Brendan David Clark has been charged with three counts of luring a child under the age of 18, three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of making child pornography and distribution of child pornography.

Clark was initially charged back in December after he allegedly communicated with an undercover police officer who was posing as an adult female.

Police say he engaged in a conversation and requested to have sex with her and her two young children.

He was arrested at a downtown hotel where he had arranged to meet with the woman and her children.

At the time he was charged with two counts of possession of child pornography and three counts of making arrangements to commit a sexual offence against a child.

Police believe there may be more victims out there and are asking anyone with information to call the Internet Child Exploitation Unit at 613-236-1222 ext. 5660 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477 (TIPS) or toll free at 1-800-222-8477.
