Crime and justice: The man was arrested on Tuesday on the basis of a report, reports Bergensavisen.

The police believe that last autumn he allegedly induced a twelve-year-old girl to have sexual intercourse with himself and sent the man a video recording. The act falls under the rape provision in the Criminal Code.

– He is charged with rape and for keeping abuse material, confirms police attorney Cathrine Elisabeth Schjelderup in the West police district to BA.

It is suspected that he has caused other children from different parts of the country to send sexualised images. There should not have been physical contact between the man and the children.

The police believe there is a risk of evidence being tampered with while the investigation is ongoing.

His defender, lawyer Anette Vangsnes Askevold, states that her client pleads not guilty to rape.

– But he acknowledges having been sent photos and videos, she says.
