BIRMINGHAM — The Birmingham Police Department is seeking charges against a man seen in a viral Facebook video with a minor.
Police said the video showed the man soliciting the minor to expose her body to him. On Monday, Feb. 8, investigators determined the video was made within the city limits of Birmingham and Bessemer.
“At the time the video surfaced an official police report had not been filed with the Birmingham Police Department,” police said in a press release. “A police report was filed on Monday, February 8, 2021, after detectives encouraged a family member to file an official police report.”
Montez Fann, 37, of Birmingham, is charged with electronic solicitation of a child. He is being held in the Jefferson County Jail with no bond.
Both Birmingham Police and Bessemer Police are working together to bring formal charges against the suspect.
“The Birmingham Police Department would like to thank the community for their efforts and coming forth with information and videos to shine a light on this type of criminal behavior,” police said.
