ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL - A 55-year-old man accused of inappropriately touching two teen girls and showing them nude photos was arrested, according to records released Friday and a sheriff's official.

Paul Maurice Gould, of the 6600 block of Hulda Drive, faces two counts of lewd or lascivious molestation and a single count of transfer or display of obscenity to a minor.

One of the victims is 15 and the other 14, a sheriff's official said.

One of the victims disclosed the incidents after her mother questioned her about missing school. She said she skipped school and went to Gould's house with a friend to hang out.

One of the girls reportedly was using the computer as the other sat on the floor. Gould allegedly started tickling one of the girls. He continued doing do after she told him to stop, holding her feet and hands.

She said Gould was mad at her so she gave him a hug and he grabbed her backside.

Arrested Thursday, Gould also allegedly touched the other girl's chest and backside and showed them nude photos of a woman.

One of the girls said the two of them skipped school before and went to Gould's home. She said Gould started to touch her leg before moving to a private area. She said he pushed both girls in a lake behind his home and gave them robes to put on while he dried their clothes.
