#ChildMolester | Man accused of sexually abusing a baby arrested in San Marcos

An Oklahoma City man who allegedly filmed himself sexually abusing a baby and distributing the video via social media was arrested in San Marcos, according to U.S. Marshals.

Authorities said 22-year-old Brice Gage Watkins was taken into custody on Thursday. Authorities found him at an acquaintance’s house at the 200 block of Cordero Drive in San Marcos, Texas.

The alleged sexual abuse happened in Enid, according to officials.

Watkins was charged in August with one felony count of distribution of child pornography and additional charges of manufacturing child pornography and three counts of lewd acts with a child under 12.

Authorities said the child turned 1-year-old in June.

Watkins’ post-arrest photo is being released by authorities “in the interest of other potential victims’ families who may recognize him,” said officials with the U.S. Marshals Service.
