An Oklahoma City man was arrested after police said he gave a cellphone containing nude photos of himself to an 11-year-old girl.

According to police, the alleged incident happened at the United Methodist Church on N.W. 4th Street. The head of security for the church said the suspect, 51-year-old Merrill Wyndham, is homeless and became involved in the church’s outreach program about three years ago. He said he saw the phone and there were about 20 photos showing Wyndham nude and in states of bondage.

Wyndham reportedly told police that he did not know that the photos were on that phone. He was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on complaint of indecent or lewd acts with a child under the age of 16. He’s being held on $15,000 bond.
