WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A former Wichita YMCA employee accused of sexually assaulting two young girls at the center has pleaded no contest to rape charges.

KAKE-TV reports that the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s office confirmed 22-year-old Caleb Gaston entered the pleas on Friday. Gaston is accused of raping a 4-year-old girl and sexually assaulting a 3-year-old in January 2018.

The alleged assaults happened in the Kid Zone at the downtown YMCA in Wichita.

Gaston worked at the facility as a part-time employee for five years before his arrest, which came after a woman reported her daughter had been molested.

Gaston has been jailed on a $1.1 million bond for more than a year. He will be sentenced April 26.
