PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — A Pensacola man’s wife turned him in to police accusing him of sexually assaulting a child and having inappropriate pictures of children on his phone, according to the arrest report. 

53-year-old Eddie Galloway was arrested Monday night. Galloway’s wife told police he had taken inappropriate pictures and videos of children. The woman said she had looked at the child’s phone and found photos of that child in “provocative positions,” according to the report. 

She said there was video of Galloway telling the victim to “gyrate” and the victim was sitting on the couch and you could hear Galloway say “go head” and “do it again.”

The victim told deputies about how Galloway would perform sexual acts on him or her while playing games on his phone. 

The victim is 12 years old. He and his wife have three children together.

Galloway has been charged twice before with sexual battery on a child under the age of 12 and he is listed as a sexual predator. 

Galloway is in the Escambia County Jail with no bond.
