Ottawa police have charged an Ottawa man with possession of child pornography.

The charges stem from a complaint from computer repair technicians who noticed child pornography on the man's computer.

21-year-old Khaled Hawari of Ottawa is charged with one count of possession of child pornography.

He is scheduled to appear in court for a bail hearing on Thursday.

The Ottawa Police Service is a member of a provincial strategy to protect children from sexual abuse and exploitation online.
