BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) _ A Bartlesville man has been arrested for allegedly having child pornography and for sexual battery.

Oliver Arthur Kasler, 61, was arrested Tuesday on a complaint of possession of child pornography, possession of obscene material, sexual battery and rape by instrumentation, police said.

Bartlesville officers seized a computer earlier this summer from Kasler's work. Police said the computer contained more than 300 explicit images.

Washington County prosecutors are expected to file charges this week.

Police said their inquiry began after a 21-year-old employee claimed Kasler sexually assaulted her. Police reports on those incidents are the basis for the other complaints filed against Kasler, officers said.
