Provo man arrested after allegedly sending porn to teenage girl, ‘hissing’ at victim

PROVO, Utah – A Provo man was arrested Friday for allegedly sending pornographic material to several victims that he knew, and “hissing” at a teenage girl that he spied on while she was in the shower.

27-year-old Max Forrest was arrested for nine counts of distribution of pornographic material and one count of voyeurism of a child under 14 years of age.

According to a probable cause statement released by police, Forrest entered a home he had access to Friday morning and sent a female victim multiple text messages that included pornographic images and videos.

The victim told police they were “shocked and disgusted” by the text messages, and immediately deleted them.

Police said that Max also hissed on a female victim while in the home.

One teenage victim reportedly told police that he had attempted to gain access to the bathroom while she was showering, and had left a note asking her if she wanted to bathe with him. She told police that she had tried to cover herself with a towel while Forrest was attempting to access the bathroom, but that he most likely had seen her while unclothed.

Upon examination of Forrest’s phone, police said they found multiple sexually explicit messages that were also sent to an additional female he knew.

“It appears as if Max [Forrest] had already deleted the images and video he had sent,” police said.

Forrest was booked into the Utah County Jail for the above charges.
