PROVO, Utah (AP) - Authorities have arrested an 18-year-old Provo man accused of obtaining nude pictures of underage boys from his high school and sharing with them with other students.

The 18-year-old Manuel Felix was arrested on May 14 on suspicion of sexual exploitation of a minor, assault and dealing in harmful material.

Provo police Lt. Brandon Post says the photos were taken by the boys themselves. Felix obtained them from third parties and using a fake social media account. He texted them and showed them to others.

He also recruited others to help. Police say Felix assaulted a girl who he refused to help him.

Felix was released from jail on May 22.

The AP sought comment on the charges from Felix, but could not verify whether he had a listed telephone number or an attorney.
