An Oklahoma man is in jail, accused of making videos and taking pictures two teenage girls when they were in the shower.

The accusations first surfaced back in January, but this week, charges were filed and an arrest warrant issued.

Brent Cunningham is now in jail. The 46-year-old is accused of manufacturing and possessing child pornography, specifically pictures and videos of a 14-year-old girl and a 13-year-old girl.

According to court records, one of the victims found a camera while she was showering.

She noticed a toy monkey, that was often in the bathtub, appeared to have had its eyes cut out. When she grabbed the toy, court records reveal, she found the back had been cut open and was taped shut.

Inside of the monkey, she found a cell phone which appeared to have been recording her.

The affidavit says the girl got out of the shower and ran to her room. That's when court records say she heard Cunningham go in the bathroom, pull back the curtain, and curse.

The victim told authorities Cunningham asked her multiple times if she had his phone. She told him she did not. She said she hid the phone in her room. Later, after arriving at school, she called her mom and told her what had happened.

She also told her mom where the phone was hidden. Her mom then went to police.

Since then, police have found four videos on Cunningham's phone they describe as child pornography. They say the videos are of the first victim and one other teen.

All of the videos show the teen girls as they showered.

Court records say investigators did find a toy monkey at the home. However, the toy did not appear to have been tampered with...its eyes were not cut out and there was no slit in its back.

KFOR has intentionally not included some details of this story, including the suspect's relationship to the victim, in an effort to protect the teen's identity.
