ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- A 20-year-old St. Cloud man is charged with sexually assaulting a young girl, filming the encounters and sharing them over social media.

Abdi Mohamed Ali is charged with 1st-degree criminal sexual conduct with a child under 14-years-old, using a minor in a sexual performance or pornographic work, disseminating pornographic work, and soliciting a child through electronics.

According to the criminal complaint filed in Stearns County District Court, the child's mother called police in early April to report the assaults. The girl underwent forensic interviews and described the encounters with Ali.
