FLAGSTAFF, AZ - A Flagstaff man has been arrested after he allegedly molested two foster children in his care.

The Coconino County Sheriff's Office says detectives received information that at least one female living with a foster parent had been molested by the foster father.

After an investigation and interviews, it was found a second foster daughter was also the victim of molestation, authorities say.

The 47-year-old suspect was arrested for multiple counts of child molestation.

Authorities say the identities of the suspect and victims are being withheld to protect the victims and other children living in the home.

The investigation is ongoing as detectives coordinate with other agencies in other jurisdictions where previous incidents may have occurred.
