A 59-year-old New York man was arrested on charges that he arranged to meet a 6-year-old child in order to take pornographic photos of her, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office.
Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli announced the arrest Monday following an investigation in which Allan Davis, of Valley Stream, used the internet to make arrangements with a person he believed to be the mother of a 6-year-old female to take nude photographs of the child.
Davis, who was arrested without incident on March 23, was charged with attempt to endanger the welfare of a child and attempt to manufacture child pornography.
Davis is a registered sex offender in his home state of New York for a 1999 arrest in which he traveled from Maryland to Florida for the purpose of having sexual relations with an individual he believed to be a 14-year-old female, according to the prosecutor's office. Davis was also charged with possession of child pornography at that time.
Davis is being held on $250,000 bail and scheduled for arraignment on Tuesday.
