A California man was arrested on Monday on suspicion of posting sexually explicit photos of a 15-year-old girl on social media.
Investigators in Sacramento said on Monday they had received a tip about a “vile and disturbing” photo that appeared on the Instagram account of the man’s wife.
The man was taken into custody in Sacramento County jail after being released on $25,000 bail.
According to the police report, the woman told detectives she was in the bathroom when she saw the photo of the boy.
It shows a child’s naked body.
She said the boy was dressed in a sweatshirt, pants and underwear and was wearing a pink hoodie, the police said.
“She was afraid that she would be called a liar and that her family would lose their job if they reported it,” the police wrote in the report.
Police said the photo was taken at a local shopping mall.
