JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police arrested a man they say took nude photos of a teenage girl then threatened to post them online.

Trung Tan Dang, 44, is charged with computer child pornography.

Police say Dang took photos of the 15-year-old victim while she was showering without her knowledge.

According to the initial incident report, it appeared Dang took the photos from an elevated angle, possibly the ceiling.

Dang then sent the girl the photos in text messages and threatened to post them online.

The victim told police Dang has done this to her before.

Dang is being held without bond in the Craighead County Detention Center awaiting a probable cause hearing.
