A Slippery Rock man arrested Thursday on child pornography charges said in a written statement to investigators that he had sexual contact with three boys on 30 occasions and took nude pictures of them, according to court documents.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Cynthia Eddy on Tuesday ordered Mark Beres, 53, held without bail until a grand jury indicts him. Beres, an optometrist at the Sears in New Castle, said he had over 10,000 images of child porn on his computer, including pictures of the boys, who are ages 3, 7 and 13.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is asking anyone with information about the case to call investigators at 412-490-6513.
