PORT CHARLOTTE, FL-A Port Charlotte man was arrested on several charges, including Lewd & Lascivious Molestation, after several juvenile girls reported that he had videoed one of them at his house.

Randy Jay Connor, 42, of 4434 Melbourne Avenue in Port Charlotte, was charged with Lewd & Lascivious Molestation of a Victim between 12 and 16 years old, Contributing to the Delinquency of a Child and Video Voyeurism early Sunday morning March 23.  He is being held on a total $60,000 bond.

According to reports, three girls were at Connor’s residence on Friday March 21.  Two of the girls were 12 years old and one was 11 years old.  Connor allegedly provided the girls with alcoholic beverages.  One of the girls said that Connor slapped her on the buttocks in what she thought was a sexual manner.

The girl said while she was sleeping in the room with the other girls, she awoke to find Connor using a tablet-type device to video her.  She also found that her underwear had been pulled down.  The girl said that Connor told her she must have had a bad dream and he was just checking on her.  The girls later looked on Connor’s tablet and said they found four videos of one of the girls.

Later in the day on Saturday, the girls reported what happened to an adult they said they trusted.  Major Crimes detectives were called to investigate the case.  As a result of their investigation, Connor was located at his residence and ultimately arrested.
