‘Mr. Knick Knack’ Faces Child Pornography Charges

A 58-year-old children’s entertainer is facing 10 felony counts of possession of child pornography.

Police believe Steven Rossi, who goes by the stage name “Mr. Knick Knack,” had numerous files containing illicit images. He was arrested on April 30 and is scheduled to appear in court on June 11.

Rossi performed regularly at Reston Town Center, presenting “unique, heart-centered music for kids and their grown-ups.”

Investigators do not believe that Rossi had contact with the children in the images.

Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact the Fairfax County Police Department’s Major Crimes Bureau at 703-246-7800.

The news comes one day after police released information that a former Herndon High School teacher faced 20 new charges of child pornography.
