SANTA ANA (CBS)  — Authorities say a Mission Viejo man has been charged with molesting three girls ages 5, 9, and 10.

Omar Alirio Guzman, 43, is behind bars.

He is charged with seven felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14 and aggravated sexual assault on a child under 14. He also faces sentencing enhancement allegations for substantial sexual conduct against one of the victims and committing a sexual offense against multiple victims.

Guzman was being held on $1 million bail and is scheduled to be arraigned 10 a.m. Monday.

Guzman met a 5-year-old girl while working as a house cleaner in the victim’s Dove Canyon home in 1995, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. He allegedly performed oral sex on her. Prosecutors say he also forced her to touch his penis.

Guzman allegedly met the two other victims — a 10-year-old girl and a 9- year-old girl — while they visited the Mission Viejo home of one of his relatives between February 2009 and this month, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Guzman is accused of sexually assaulting the 10-year-old several times in his home. He is also accused of groping the 9-year-old girl, according to prosecutors.

Guzman faces up to 135 years to life in prison if convicted on all counts.
