A Navy SEAL team member has been arrested after he allegedly raped a woman and recorded himself molesting a 5- or 6-year-old girl as she slept..
Gregory Seerden , a member of SEAL Team One, was arrested on counts of production and possession of child pornography, according to a criminal complaint filed in Norfolk, Va.
Investigators searching the special ops member’s phone said they found videos created on the special ops member’s phone showing an unidentified man with a similar shirt to Seerden masturbating and touching a girl who appeared to be 5 or 6 with his penis.
They also found 78 images of “prepubsecent children engaged in sexual activity to include giving and receiving oral sex and sexual intercourse.”
The investigation into Seerden began earlier this year when an adult woman said that she was raped by the special ops member at a Virginia hotel in January.
She said that she had gone out drinking with Seerden and did not have memory of the night other than remembering Seerden being on top of her.
After the woman reported the alleged rape, Seerden admitted to her that he knew she was not sober, according to the criminal complaint.
The SEAL does not currently face any charges related to that allegation.
A lawyer for Seerden in California, where he was arrested, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Virginian-Pilot, which first reported the case, says that Seerden is a Petty Officer 1st class.
