Timothy L. Brown, 59, of 624 Gotham St., was jailed Friday after allegedly making sexually explicit comments to a pair of teenage girls passing his residence.
Watertown police charged Mr. Brown with two counts of endangering the welfare of child. He was arraigned before Watertown Town Justice David A. Renzi and sent to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building, with bail set at $500 cash or $1,000 bond.
Police allege he tried to lure the girls, both 15, into his house by stating he would shove it down her throat, according to a report. The girls perceived the comment as a sexual threat and it was seen by police as endangering their moral welfare, the report added.
