Detectives arrested a Baltimore man in connection with sending an inappropriate photo to a high school student.

The suspect is 26-year-old Carl Joseph of the 600 block of Harwood Avenue in Baltimore. He worked with one of the girls basketball teams at Gwynn Park High School in Brandywine as a volunteer trainer. He is not a Prince George’s County Public Schools employee.

PGPD investigators learned of the incident from Prince George’s County School Security officials. The preliminary investigation reveals that earlier this month Joseph texted a photo of his full body including his genitals to the victim. A student who was aware of the photo notified a teacher. Joseph was arrested Monday and is charged with solicitation of a minor and displaying obscene nude pictures.
