Three girls have come forward accusing a Phoenix babysitter of child sex crimes, according to police. 

Phoenix police report that on September 21 a girl under 5 years old accused 36-year-old David Gene Reed of touching her sexually. 

Police say, three days later, a different, unrelated victim also came forward saying she was victimized multiple times while visiting the first victim. 

Court documents show that in 2016, Reed was questioned by detectives regarding accusations by a 16-year-old girl who reported that Reed molested her when she was 9 years old. 

Reed reportedly denied all the allegations, but admitted to "accidentally watching pornography while the three children were at home with him." He also said he wrestled with the girls and touched the first victim, but only checking to see if she wet herself. 

Reed is being held on a $100,000 cash bond for child molestation.
