A Queens cop was slapped with child pornography charges after videos of underage girls engaging in sexual acts were allegedly found on his computer.

Yong Wu, 38, was busted through an investigation of people who were sharing files of child pornography over peer-to-peer networks, court records said.

An IP address being used by Wu allegedly downloaded two video files that each showed a girl about 11 to 13 years in age engaging in lewd acts. In one, the girl was having sex with an adult male, according to a criminal complaint. He was allegedly found to sharing at least 60 files of interest to investigators.

A warrant was executed Monday morning at the Wu”s south Queens home, where a desktop computer was recovered on which five videos of young girls were allegedly found.

The videos included the girls, between the ages of 8 and 12,  engaging in various  sex acts with adult men, court documents said.

Wu, who works as an NYPD officer in Brooklyn, was arraigned Monday on seven counts each of promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing a sexual performance by child, according to officials.
