A West Palm Beach man was arrested Friday evening in New York on multiple child pornography charges, according to West Palm Beach Police. 

Officials say the investigation began after a Cyber Tip report from the National Center od Missing and Exploited Children. 

The tip led the West Palm Beach Police SWAT and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force to obtain and execute a search warrant to an address at the 800 block of Brandon Prescott Ln., in West Palm Beach.

The search warrant executed on Sept. 18, yielded child pornography. 

18-year-old Hasan Khalaf was arrested at the John F. Kennedy Airport by US Marshals and US Customs in connection with the investigation. 

Khalaf faces 13 counts of child pornography that includes nine videos and 4 images, officials say.
