A Phoenix man is accused of giving his pre-teen daughter sexual enhancement supplements, then uploading sexually exploitative videos of her to the internet. 

In October 2017, Australian investigators identified a user profile connected to a sexually exploitative photo album labeled "daughter." The internet address used was traced to a home near 35th and Dunlap avenues. 

The Australian investigators turned over their information to U.S. Department of Homeland Security agents in Phoenix. 

On April 4, HSI agents served a warrant on the home, where they allegedly found multiple digital devices with the user profile. The 44-year-old suspect reportedly admitted to agents that he had been downloading "child sexual abuse material for years." 

The suspect also reportedly admitted to giving his daughter, who is under 10 years old, "female sexual enhancement supplements." 

Several of the uploaded images were identified as his daughter. 

He also allegedly told agents that if he weren't stopped, "the sexual abuse of his daughter would escalate." 

The Arizona Attorney General's Office has charged the man with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
