CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. -- Investigators arrested a Port Charlotte man this weekend after three young girls say he gave them alcohol and video taped them while they slept at his house.

42-year-old Randy Connor has been charged with Lewd & Lascivious Molestation of a Victim between 12 and 16 years old, Contributing to the Delinquency of a Child and Video Voyeurism.

According to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office, two 12-year-old girls and one 11-year-old girl were staying at Connor's house Friday night.  The girls reportedly were given alcohol and one said Connor slapped her on the rear in an inappropriate way.

That girl says that while sleeping in the house that night, she awoke to find that her underwear had been pulled down and found Connor using a tablet device to video her.

Connor told the girl that he was just checking on her and that she must have been having a bad dream.

The girls later found four videos of one girl on Connor's tablet.

The girls reported the incident to another adult on Saturday, and Connor was located at his residence and arrested.

Connor is being held on $60,000 bond at the Charlotte County Jail.
