SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — A Shreveport man is behind bars, accused of sexually assaulting two girls who are under the age of 13.

According to the Shreveport Police Department, 60-year-old Aaron Tookes of the 2700 block of Sanford Street is charged with two counts of molestation of a juvenile under 13-years-old for allegedly assaulting a pair of young girls he had come into contact with.
