OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City man is accused of sexually abusing young girls.
Police said he has at least two victims.
Carl William Martin, 31, is sitting in the Oklahoma County Jail charged with 12 counts of child sex crimes.
Neighbors are shocked the alleged sexual abuse took place on their street.
"I'm glad he's locked up, because I have two young daughters, and that just scares me to know that it was somebody down here," said Samuel Jackson.
In April of 2015, Martin was arrested for sexually and physically abusing a teenage girl.
The victim told police the abuse started at age 9 and went on until she was 13.
According to an affidavit, he had intercourse with her and “hit her repeatedly with a ruler causing injury."
"We never even knew nothing about this," Jackson said.
After nearly seven months in jail, Martin bonded out, but he was not on the streets for long.
Martin was recently arrested again, after another girl came forward claiming he had also sexually abused her years earlier.
Marin allegedly “put his finger in her vagina,” “touched her breasts when she was swimming in the pool” and “took naked pictures of her.”
"Not just make me sick, it just makes me mad that a grown person would do that to some child," Jackson said. "He better be lucky it wasn't my daughter he was doing it to, or I probably would be in jail.”
The second victim told police she did not come forward until she found out the suspect had been arrested for sexually abuse.
Martin is currently awaiting trial on the first case.
