DELTONA, Fla. (AP) - A 79-year-old central Florida man is accused of stalking a 10-year-old girl and committing lewd acts outside her bedroom window.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office says Rogelio Melot Rodriguez was arrested Tuesday. He’s charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious exhibition to someone under 16.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://bit.ly/1F40o8A ) reports the girl’s mother and a 15-year-old boy reported the incident on Tuesday.

Deputies say the girl had told her mother about Melot Rodriguez and she started watching him. On Tuesday evening, she saw him standing outside her daughter’s window. He left but came back a short time later and the girl’s brother saw him.

Rodriguez told deputies he was tired from walking and had stopped outside the home. It’s not clear whether he’s hired an attorney.
