PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix man is accused of molesting five girls between the ages of 10 and 16 during the past two years.

Phoenix police say 37-year-old Kenneth Burle Clouser Jr. was arrested at his home Tuesday after investigators say one girl initially came forward to report abuse and four more girls did the same.

Clouser was arrested on suspicion of 19 sex crimes including sexual abuse, child molestation and indecent exposure.

Police say Clouser has denied the allegations.

He was ordered held without bond after Wednesday’s initial court appearance and doesn’t have an attorney yet.

Court records show a 13-year-old girl first told police about the abuse and said Clouser inappropriately touched her on three different occasions last year as they watched television and movies at his home.
