HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – Houston Fire Department captain’s addiction to sex led him to roleplay in online chat rooms, carry on a cyber affair with a 14-year-old Wyoming girl and attempt suicide, according to probable cause documents released by the Harris County Assistant District Attorney’s Office.

Saul Abraham Fiszer is charged with three counts of child pornography possession after police searched his Toshiba laptop, which never left his side according to a police interview with his wife.

Two photos and a video file qualified for charges. The first photo depicts two young boys between 4- and 8-years old engaged in oral sex and a second photo of a nude girl – between 5- and 8-years old – in a sexually suggestive pose. The video shows a female, guessed to be younger than 13-years old, taking a shower.

“We, as a department, take these allegations very seriously,” Fire Chief Terry Garrison said in a statement Friday. “As a result of these allegations, I have opened up an Internal Affairs investigation that will run concurrently with HPD’s ongoing criminal investigation.”

Fiszer, an 18-year HFD veteran, began his career in April, 1994. He was assigned to station 21 on the “C” shift. Fiszer was relieved of duty with pay, pending the results of ongoing investigation. Just before 11 a.m. Friday morning, he signed resignation papers and is no longer employed by the Houston Fire Department, according to the statement.

Documents indicate that Fiszer’s wife thought he was a “sick man”. Just prior to his arrest, an officer spoke to Fiszer over the phone in an attempt to dissuade him from a suicide and wait for the department’s crisis team could respond and take him into custody.

Fiszer became increasingly suicidal after his wife confronted him about his alleged affair with the 14-year old.

The alleged victim, who is referred to as “Chelsea”, called him “Daddy”, according to documents.

Mrs. Fiszer’s saw a strange number that surfaced repeatedly in his cell phone log and contacted the girl and posed as her husband. She then called the police in the girl’s hometown in Casper, Wyo. and contacted the girl’s parents.
