MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. (KABC) -- An Illinois man was arrested and charged with felonies involving possession of child pornography after he was found filming himself inappropriately touching a child in the kid's bedroom.

Authorities said around 10:53 p.m. Wednesday, Mount Prospect police were called on reports of a disturbance. When officers arrived at a home in the 600 block of North Elmhurst Avenue, they found a suspect identified as Dennis Rubio, 49.
