MANATEE -- A 54-year-old Ellenton man was arrested on a charge of child molestation Friday, according to the Manatee Sheriff's Office.
Robert Cantu was charged with capital sexual battery on a child under the age of 12 years old, according to an arrest report.
The incidents are said to have occurred between March 1, 2012 and June 1, 2013.
The two victims made the disclosure to their mother on Thursday that Cantu had inappropriately touched them while at being baby-sat at his house.
Cantu admitted some of the allegations while denying others during a recorded, controlled call with the mother and later when interviewed in his home.
