A Carroll County man, 36-year-old Robert Hayes Dunbar Jr. of Eureka Springs, is being held in the Marion County jail on one felony count of computer child pornography.

According to the affidavit, a criminal investigator with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by a Mountain Home school resource officer in late September in reference to a complaint she received from a female student under the age of 15.

The student told the SRO she had received pictures of a male’s genitalia through three social media platforms. The suspect, Dunbar, is reportedly the father of the student’s friend.

In December, the investigator was advised the student had allegedly received additional sexually-explicit messages from Dunbar.

Several unsuccessful attempts were made to contact Dunbar for an interview before he was booked into the Marion County Detention Center Friday.

Dunbar’s bond is set at $25,000.
