Local police are investigating a 16-year-old Red Wing boy who may have downloaded child pornography off the Internet. Red Wing authorities have seized the boy's computer and are awaiting results from forensic analysis of the contents, police Chief Tim Sletten said.

The boy allegedly told police he downloaded the sexual material in October by accident. Sletten said the case will likely be forwarded to the Goodhue County Attorney's Office.
