A man who had just moved into a Northwest side neighborhood is accused of fondling two girls.
The mother of the girls, ages 8 and 11, called San Antonio police Thursday after her daughters told her Bawi Ceu, 20, had groped them at their home, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
The woman told investigators the attack happened Wednesday night when she left the home briefly to go to a nearby Sonic restaurant.
She said her daughters told her they answered a knock on their door and saw Ceu standing outside, the affidavit stated.
The children said Ceu asked where their mother was, then reached inside and groped each girl’s private parts, the affidavit stated.
The woman said her daughters didn’t tell her about the incident until the following day because they feared they’d get in trouble for opening the door, the affidavit stated.
Police said the children told them they had met Ceu, a new neighbor, for the first time Monday.
They told investigators he had called them over as they walked by and began questioning them.
The girls said he also gave their brother $5 “for no reason.”, the affidavit stated.
