BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A 47-year-old Bridgeport man has been charged with sexually assaulting two young sisters from the Bronx whom he met on Facebook, according to the Connecticut Post.

Raymond Ortiz, 47, of Ruth Street, was charged Wednesday with two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and two counts of risk of injury to a minor and was held on $75,000 bond, the Post said.

Ortiz had sent the girls — ages 8 and 12 — a Facebook video of himself while masturbating, then approached them while they were attending a barbecue in Bridgeport in August, the Connecticut Post said.

Police said Ortiz exposed himself to the girls and touched them through their clothes, the Connecticut Post said.
