MISSOULA - A Missoula man is facing felony sexual assault charges for allegedly molesting two little girls.
Missoula police say on Saturday night, at a home on Rogers Street, the parents of two girls, ages four and five, left the children with their friend Jared Fruend for about 15 minutes, and when they came back home, they found Fruend in bed with one of the girls.
The mother said both of her daughters told her Fruend touched them inappropriately and he did it on more than one occasion. When the parents of the girls went to confront Fruend, he was already gone, but neighbors chased him down and detained him until police arrived.
Prosecutors say Fruend admitted molesting the girls and said he'd commit the crime again if released from jail. The judge set his bail at $100,000.
