TULSA, Okla. - Authorities in Tulsa arrested a man accused of sexually abusing his girlfriend's 10-year-old daughter.

A 31- count warrant was filed against 32-year-old Mikel Grodin after a friend called police, alleging that Grodin was sexually abusing a child.

While at the victim's home, police seized a cell phone for evidence that allegedly contained video of Grodin used zip ties to bind the child's hands while he forced himself on her.

Authorities say the sexual attacks occurred at least six different times.

Grodin is also facing charges for child pornography.

Investigators told KTVI that the child's mother did not know about the alleged crimes.

U.S. Marshals began looking for Grodin in Oklahoma, near his hometown of Bixby.

According to KTVI, Grodin was arrested in Tulsa on Thursday.

Now, officials are waiting for Grodin to be extradited back to Illinois.

Prosecutors are concerned this child isn't the only one Grodin may have abused.
