Porum man accused of molesting two girls


— A Porum man is being held on $100,000 bond and is charged with molesting two young girls.

Aaron Kevin Jones is charged with touching the vaginal areas of a 7-year-old and a 9-year-old between July 3 and Sept. 3.

Jones, 18, was arrested Thursday and is being held in the Muskogee County/City Detention Facility on two counts of lewd molestation.

Police began their investigation after the 9-year-old girl told a school counselor that she had been molested by the 18-year-old, police said.

The alleged assault happened at her home in Muskogee.

Another 7-year-old girl reported a similar assault when Oklahoma Department of Human Services questioned the mother and child, police said.

Jones will be back in Muskogee County District Court on Oct. 11 for a sounding docket. At that time, a date will be set for a preliminary hearing so that testimony can be given.
