ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man faces charges of molesting two teens at a SeaWorld's Aquatica water park.

Local news outlets report 32-year-old Roy McCormick of Havelock, North Carolina, was arrested Sunday after two teens who were visiting the area with a police explorers group say he groped them as they floated down a river at the park.

Deputies tried to talk to McCormick but he asked for a lawyer.

Park officials told investigators McCormick is an annual pass holder who has visited the water park multiple times this year.

He remains in the Orange County Jail where he's charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation. A lawyer wasn't listed on jail records.
