UPDATE: A man has been arrested in connection with the case. 

Police in Germany have revealed images of an unknown little girl filmed in a harrowing sexual abuse video – in a bid to save her from her molester.

The unnamed girl is believed to be aged between four and five years old and has straight dark blonde hair.

She has a round chin, snub nose and detectives believe she has brown eyes.

Footage of the abuse was discovered on a platform on the notorious ‘dark web’ – an encrypted version of the internet where users are theoretically untraceable.

According to a Federal Criminal Police Office statement, investigators suspect the abuse took place during the period of October 2016 – July 2017 in Germany.

They have been unable to identify the suspect and took the unusual step of releasing pictures of the victim because they fear she may be still in danger of further abuse.
