A 96-year-old man faces charges after allegedly exposing himself to children and molesting two girls, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Monday.

Kenneth Leroy Collins, of Laguna Woods, California, faces four felony counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a minor under 14, according to the OC Register.

The alleged crimes occurred in January and February – officials say Collins took off his adult diaper to expose himself to two girls, ages 10 and 11, and began masturbating.  He also allegedly touched the girls over their clothing, according to Deputy District Attorney Mena Guirguis.

Guirguis said Collins was not related to the two girls, but that they often visited his home.

Officers arrested Collins Feb. 25; he is being held on $1 million bail.
