Paragould man arrested for internet stalking, child sexual abuse material

A Paragould man was arrested this week on charges involving the alleged internet stalking of a minor.

Pierre Isiah Dowling, 23, of Paragould, was arrested by the Jonesboro Police Department for internet stalking and computer child pornography on Monday, May 9.

The release from JPD posted to social media said a detective with JPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Division was contacted by the victim, who said an adult sent her nude images through social media in November. The victim told police the content turned sexual shortly after accepting the friend request. The case was turned over to JPD for further investigation due to the specialized resources within the ICAC division.

On Monday, Dowling was arrested and booked into the Craighead County Detention Center. He appeared before Judge Tommy Fowler on Wednesday (today), where a $75,000 bond was set for his release.
