WARSAW, Ind. (21Alive) -- Thursday afternoon Warsaw Police Detectives served a search warrant and arrest warrants after investigating a report that Joseph A. Sturgill, 31, forced two young girls, ages 7 and 8, to watch pornographic videos and look at pornographic pictures last Saturday at the suspects apartment near downtown Warsaw.

Sturgill also reportedly exposed his genitals to the girls. The girls are family friends of Sturgill and his wife.

Warsaw Police arrested Sturgill on two charges of child solicitation and one charge of dissemination of matter harmful to minors, all class D felonies.

Investigators seized the suspect’s cell phone and more charges are expected for a separate indecent exposure incident involving an adult female.

Police believe that other indecent exposure incidents have occurred involving the suspect and are asking that anyone with information contact the Warsaw Police Investigations Division at 574-372-9531.
