A Paso Robles man on Thursday was arrested on suspicion of committing lewd acts with a 6-year-old girl.

Police responded around 10:55 p.m. to reports of a disturbance at a home in the 1000 block of Vista Grande Street. When officers arrived, they found the girl’s mother had interrupted Jason Robert Porter, 44, who was visiting the home, taking lewd photographs of her daughter, according to a Paso Robles Police Department news release.

After protecting her daughter, the woman alerted others in the house, which led to a disturbance outside the home.

An investigation revealed Porter allegedly committed a lewd act with the same victim at a different time. He was arrested on suspicion of possession of child pornography and committing a lewd act with a child under 14 years of age. Porter was booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail, but was later released after posting bail.
