ACT Policing has arrested a 50-year-old woman after she allegedly repeatedly sexually abused her 2-year-old granddaughter and posted it to TikTok.
Late last month (Friday, 27 January 2023) the Australian Federal Police Child Protection Triage Unit received a report of newly produced child abuse material being uploaded onto social media platforms.
The incident was handed to the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse team and the ACT Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team.
On Sunday, 6 February 2023 officers raided a southern Canberra home where a woman was arrested.
She has been charged with aggravated acts of indecency against a child under 10 years, using a child to produce aggravated child exploitation material and using a carriage service for child abuse materials.
Police are urging any victims of sexual assault, including anyone who is aware of intimate images being shared without the subject’s consent, to report these criminal activities.
