(CNN) -- A suspected pedophile who became the subject of an international manhunt earlier this week after an appeal from Interpol has been detained in the United States.
Wayne Nelson Corliss, 58, was arrested at his apartment in Union City, New Jersey, about midnight Thursday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, Interpol said in a written statement.
Corliss later confessed to the allegations during police questioning, Interpol said.
He is expected to make an initial court appearance at 2:30 p.m. ET (1830 GMT) Thursday in federal court in Newark, New Jersey, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a statement.
Interpol on Tuesday announced it was attempting to identify the man, who was featured in 100 photographs sexually abusing at least three boys between the ages of 6 and 10, it said.
The images came to light in 2006, when Norwegian authorities discovered them in the possession of a man they arrested. They were believed to have been taken in Southeast Asia.
Interpol posted six pictures of the suspect on its Web site.
