Police: Local Man Caught on Camera Touching Girls Inappropriately
A Temple man was arrested late last week and charged with indecency with a child by contact after a mother reportedly caught him on camera touching her children inappropriately.
Alex Cano with our news partner, KWTX, reports that the man was arrested on Friday, August 11 and remained in custody Tuesday, August 14 in lieu of $300,000 bond.
Cano did not reveal the man's name in order to protect the privacy of the victims, who are both under the age of 10.
According to Cano's report, the children's mother called Temple police on July 12 after reviewing footage from a surveillance camera. The video reportedly shows the man touching one of the children's genital area, and the other's buttocks.
The mother has provided the footage to investigators.
