LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say an Anthony man is accused of burglarizing a home and sexually assaulting two young girls.

Dona Ana County Sheriff’s officials say 19-year-old Carlos Ivan Flores was arrested Sunday morning.

He’s being held without bond at the County Detention Center on suspicion of two counts of criminal sexual contact of a minor, aggravated residential burglary and aggravated assault.

Authorities say two girls under the age of 13 told their mother a man came into their home through a window and inappropriately touched them.

Sheriff’s officials say Flores allegedly broke into the victims’ home by opening an unlocked window and allegedly threatened the two girls with a knife.

The girls ran out of the room and told their mother, who called police as Flores reportedly fled through the open window.
