PURCELL, Okla - It's not the kind of crime you expect to hear in small town America.

But Purcell police are investigating disturbing allegations of lewd acts involving twin 4-year-olds, a boy and girl.

The twins were brought to police headquarters and interviewed separately.

Detectives say they told the exact same story, one in which the alleged suspect encouraged them to touch each other while he watched.

The police report goes on to say 34-year-old John Bullock touched himself as the children watched him.

The kids shared what had happened with their mom when she got home from work.

After learning about the crime, she confronted Bullock.

Detective Scott Stephens, with the Purcell Police Department, said, "And once he made a partial admission to her, she took the children and left the house and called police."

Bullock was booked into the McClain County Jail, charged with two counts of lewd or indecent acts with a child under 16.

He's being held on a $200,000 bond.
