A Providence man out on bail after being arrested for  luring two young girls into his apartment, showing them pornographic videos, and forcing them to touch him.

ABC6 news has learned it allegedly happened at the home of 66-year-old Juan Gomez, inside an apartment house on Smith Street.

The investigation began earlier this month after a woman told police her 8–year-old daughter said Gomez knocked on their door and forced her and a 7–year-old friend into his apartment.

The girls were home alone at the time.

Gomez is charged with 2nd degree child molestation and indecent solicitation. He was arraigned Monday and released on surety bail. He is ordered not to have contact with the two girls.
