A Town of Attica woman faces charges of child sex abuse after Attica Police received a complaint from someone who said a woman Sunday presented them with a video allegedly depicting a sexual act involving a child and adult, according to the Attica Police Department.

Victoria L. Young, 23, of East Avenue, was charged with first-degree sexual abuse, the use of a child less than 17 for a sexual performance and endangering the welfare of a child, Attica Police said.

Young was arrested Wednesday after a police investigation, with assistance from the Wyoming County's social services department and Child Protective Services, according to Attica Police.

Attica Police executed a search warrant at Young's apartment, where they collected alleged evidence, Attica Police said. Police were assisted by the State Police's computer crime unit.
