CROWN POINT — A 50-year-old man was accused Thursday of sexually abusing two children.

David P. Geary is charged in Lake Criminal Court with two counts of child molestation and one count of incest.

Geary is accused of repeatedly sexually abusing one child beginning when the child was 6 years old. The alleged victim, now 19, told police the abuse happened at Geary's home in Hammond.

The second alleged victim, now 11, said Geary repeatedly groped the child between 2012 and 2014 at the Hammond home. Geary would offer video games as bribes to continue the abuse, the child said.

Geary was arrested Friday, according to a spokesman for the Lake County Sheriff's Office. 

He is not afforded bond, according to court records.

An initial court hearing has not yet been scheduled.
