A four-month investigation into child pornography-related offences has ended with the arrest of a Windsor man.

The Ontario Provincial Police Child Sexual Exploitation Unit, Digital Forensic Unit, and officers at the Tecumseh detachment executed a search warrant at a Windsor home Tuesday and seized two electronic devices containing material depicting child pornography.

Police charged 34-year-old Fraser Christopher Sulatychi with two counts of possession of child pornography and one count of making available child pornography.

The charges have not been proven in court, and Sulatychi has a bail hearing at the Ontario Court of Justice Wednesday.

Parents are reminded to take a proactive approach to help protect their children from online sexual exploitation by speaking to them about internet safety.

“Our reality today is that every person around the world with a sexual interest in children has immediate access to any child that has access to the internet,” said Staff Sergeant Sharon Hanlon of the OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit. “It’s like they are sitting next to our kids even though they could be across the globe.”

Police say the offenders tend to be very manipulative, and if parents are not engaged with their child’s online activities, they could be victimized.
