COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A man was arrested on charges of sexual exploitation of a child in Colorado Springs Wednesday, according to police.

Police said Michael Hyatt, 35, was arrested Wednesday morning.

The warrant was part of an investigation into the possession of child sex abuse material, according to police.

Hyatt is the third person in the past week to be charged with sexual exploitation of a child in Colorado Springs.
