LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested a Louisville man after he was allegedly caught viewing child porn at a public library computer.

It happened at the Louisville Free Public Library's Bon Air Branch on Del Rio Place, just west of Farnsley Park, at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

Police say officers were dispatched to the library after a citizen called to report that they had witnessed a man looking at child pornography on the library computer.

When police arrived, they interviewed the suspect, who turned out to be 37-year-old Mark L. Brown. When Brown gave detectives permission to search the content of the thumb drive he was using, they allegedly found child pornography.

Police say Brown admitted that he had been looking at pictures of "adolescents" and that he had saved some of the pictures on his thumb drive.

Brown was arrested at the scene and charged with two counts of possession of matter portraying the sexual performance of a minor.

According to the Kentucky Sex Offender Registry, Brown is a registered sex offender who has been convicted of sodomy and engaging in an unlawful transaction with a minor in the past. The victim in at least one of those incidents was 13 years of age, according to the registry.
