The man believed to be sexually assaulting a young girl in a video that’s been widely shared on social media has turned himself into police.

Forty-four-year-old Germaine Moore is currently in police custody and facing 11 counts related to criminal sexual conduct. Police went to the Alabama man’s home on Monday in search of him. When he didn’t return, they took his fiancee into custody. Police say the woman was uncooperative and is being charged with interfering with prosecution. Moore eventually turned himself in.

The video has been circulating throughout social media and police are advising anyone still receiving the video to report it and delete it. The young girl in the video is reported to be under 13 years old and is reportedly safe. The Montgomery Police Department has also arrested another suspect for possessing and distributing the video.
