A Redwood City man was arrested on suspicion of possession of child pornography today, police said.

In June, the Redwood City Police Department received a cyber tip from the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force which led to an investigation into Torres, who was booked into jail for possession of child pornography, police said.
