CRESTVIEW – A 33-year-old Crestview man was arrested Nov. 30 and charged with lewd and lascivious molestation on a child younger than 12 after two victims told authorities that he touched them on multiple occasions.
Most of the incidents happened in Crestview, though there were several instances in New York. He was charged there as well, according to his Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office arrest report.
The Daily News is not identifying the suspect to protect the identity of the victims.
One child described hugs in a bedroom that turned into the man taking off her clothes. She also said that he made her body go “up and down” on his, according to his Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report. Another incident occurred in a swimming pool.
A second victim told similar stories of abuse happening both in bed and in a pool.
When interviewed, the suspect confessed to sexually touching two victims multiple times, the report said. He said he thought the victims were sleeping when he touched them and didn't realize either of them knew what he was doing.
