JERSEY CITY — A member of the U.S. Air Force is alleged to have transmitted explicit images and videos while he was stationed in Dubai and his underage daughter was back at home in New Jersey, according to a release from the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office on Wednesday.

That is as specific a description as the prosecutor's office was willing to provide of any of the alleged offenses committed by the man, a 30-year-old Jersey City resident. His name is being withheld to protect the identity of the victim, the HCPO said.

The defendant was arrested Tuesday by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Arizona Violent Offender Task Force, with assistance from a fugitive task force in New York and New Jersey.
