A northwest Illinois man is facing felony charges after police said he sent nude photos of himself to a young Naperville girl he met through an online video game.

Brian C. Dyke, 26, of the 800 block of 4th Street, Fulton, befriended a girl between the ages of 5 and 16 through the game IMVU, according to Naperville Police Sgt. Gregg Bell.

The game’s website bills it as “the world’s largest 3D Chat and Dress-Up community.” While the two met through the game, Dyke is accused of sending naked pictures via cell phone text message, according to Bell.

Bell said the girl’s parents discovered her interactions with Dyke. Police have been investigating since March 6 and called in their High Technology Crimes Unit to work the case.

Working with Fulton police, they served a search warrant on Dyke’s home and found about 20 images of child pornography involving two victims. Bell would not say whether either of those children was the Naperville girl. There is no evidence Dyke came into physical contact with the girl, he said.

Dyke was arrested May 22 and charged with two counts of child pornography, two counts of grooming and one count of solicitation to meet a child for an unlawful purpose, all of which are felonies. He is being held at the DuPage County jail on a $350,000 bond.

Police are reminding parents to monitor their children’s computer and cell phone usage.
