A 20-year-old man was arrested in connection with images of nude female children engaged in sexual acts on his cellphone, according to police and court records.

About 6:20 p.m. Wednesday, Aaron J. Cichon of the 500 block of White Oak Road in Bolingbrook was booked into the Will County jail on child pornography charges.

On June 26, Cichon approached two girls who were near John R. Tibbott Elementary School on Gary Drive, Bolingbrook police Lt. Anthony Columbus said in an email.

Columbus said Cichon and the girls had an extended conversation and “Snapchat was discussed.” He said Cichon’s conversation with the pair became “sexual in nature.”

Police investigated Cichon after a parent of one of the girls contacted the department, Columbus said.

Cichon was contacted and questioned by the police, Columbus said. During the course of the investigation, officers discovered child pornography on Cichon’s phone, he said.

On Wednesday, Judge Dave Carlson signed a warrant for Cichon’s arrest. Cichon was taken into custody without incident, Columbus said.

The criminal complaint against Cichon alleges he possessed images on his phone depicting nude female children engaged in sexual acts.

Cichon’s bond was set at $250,000.
