R&B star R. Kelly has been arrested in Chicago on federal sex crime charges, two law enforcement sources said Thursday night.

Robert Kelly, 52, was arrested by New York police detectives and investigators from the Department of Homeland Security, the sources said.

A senior law enforcement official told NBC News that separate federal indictments were filed against Kelly in Chicago and Brooklyn.

Joseph Fitzpatrick, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Chicago, told the Associated Press that Kelly was taken into custody about 7 p.m. Thursday after a 13-count federal indictment was handed down in federal court for the Northern District of Illinois earlier in the day.

“The counts include child porn, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice,” he said.

Further details were expected to be announced Friday.

Kelly is expected to appear in federal court in Chicago first, but when that will happen was not clear early Friday.

Homeland Security’s investigations division and New York police declined to comment. Calls to the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, New York, weren’t immediately returned.
