CROWN POINT — A man is accused of molesting two girls last month at a home in Cedar Lake. 

Roy F. Murphy, 28, of Cedar Lake, was charged Wednesday in Lake Criminal Court with two counts of child molestation, level 4 felonies. 

Murphy allegedly groped the girls, ages 5 and 10, the night of Jan. 13 at a home in the 9100 block of W. 133rd Lane, according to court records. 

The 10-year-old girl texted her mother after the alleged abuse ended. The mother called police the next day, records state.  

A warrant was issued Wednesday for Murphy. He is not afforded bond, according to records.
