BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police are investigating pornographic photos posted online of a child who is said to be from the city.

The police chief says Youth Bureau detectives are investigating an online post claiming that graphic photos are of a 10-year-old girl from Bridgeport. It isn't clear who took and posted the photos.

The images were allegedly posted on a social photo sharing site.

Police say that anyone who comes across child pornography should not forward it to anyone, including authorities, but should instead call the police and have them investigate.

The police chief says he was shocked by this case but that this is unfortunately more common than people might think.
