A 50-year-old woman has been arrested, accused of repeatedly sexually abusing her two-year-old granddaughter and posting it on TikTok.
The AFP’s Child Protection Triage Unit received a report of newly produced child abuse material being uploaded onto social media platforms less than two weeks ago (27 January).
The alleged incident was then referred to the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse team and the ACT Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team.
Officers executed a search warrant at a southern Canberra residence on Sunday (5 February) where a woman was arrested.
She’s 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.
The 50-year-old is scheduled to front ACT Magistrates Court today (6 February).
Police have urged any victims of sexual assault, including anyone who is aware of intimate images being shared without the subject’s consent, to report it.
If you or someone you know has been affected by sexual violence, you can report it to police by attending a police station or calling 131444.
You can also submit an online report for historical sexual assault for incidents that occurred more than six months ago.
