The pornographic video showing a little girl being sexually assaulted by an adult male did not originate in Trinidad and Tobago.

A 44-year-old man yesterday surrendered at the Millbrook Police Department in Alabama for his part in the video, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) confirmed.

Last week, the graphic video was shared on social media sites, prompting the TTPS to warn citizens that sharing it was against the law. It was originally thought to have been filmed in Jamaica, but that change to Trinidad after a Diego Martin grandmother saw the video and made a report to the Four Roads Police Station, fearing it was her six-year-old grandchild was the one being assaulted. However, the child was interviewed by members of the Child Protection Unit (CPU) and the Children’s Authority but she did not have a scar or burns on her left forearm, as the child in the video did.

A release from the TTPS yesterday stated that a man identified as Germain Moore, 44, Germaine Moore turned himself in to the Alabama police at 2.30 am yesterday in connection with the pornographic video. Moore was charged with sexual assault of a child, distribution of video depicting the assault and first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Another man named Jerrell Washington, 42, was also charged with distributing the video.
