OAKLAND TWP — A township man is accused of child molestation at the day care center his wife operates.

Roger Leo Young, 65, is charged with two counts each of indecent assault to a minor and corruption of minors. The incidents are alleged to have taken place around November 2010 at the Patti Cake Child Care Center on Route 68.

In 2011, an underage girl made an allegation that Young had touched her inappropriately while he was holding her on his lap in a rocking chair. The girl also said she saw Young have inappropriate contact with another girl.

Later, state police used a search warrant to obtain video surveillance from the day care that allegedly showed Young assaulting two other girls. One instance allegedly shows Young inappropriately touching a girl while she is lying down, and another shows Young lifting a girl's shirt and touching her inappropriately.

Other footage showed Young sitting in the rocking chair with multiple girls, however, a police report said his back was turned to the camera and his hands were not seen.

Young faces a Sept. 2 preliminary hearing in Chicora before District Judge Lewis Stoughton.
