(KUTV) A Layton man faces several felony charges after being accused of sexually abusing two juveniles at his house.

Alexander Winward was arrested Wednesday afternoon and booked on four counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child.

According to a probable cause statement, the alleged abuse happened in May 2017 while the two juveniles were playing at Winward's Layton home. Police said Winward told each juvenile he wanted to "play a game," after which he pulled down their pants and fondled them. This happened multiple times, according to police.

The gender and ages of the juveniles were not released. Layton Police Lt. Travis Lyman confirmed the suspect and victims are acquaintances.

Lyman told 2News investigators do not have reason to believe there are additional victims but are asking the public to reach out with any information they may have. Call the Layton Police Department at (801) 497-8300.
