PHOENIX — A man sitting poolside at a Phoenix motel is accused of showing pornography to children.

Phoenix police report that on Saturday, they responded to the Budget Inn Suites near 7th Avenue and Indian School Road.

There they arrested 52-year-old Salvatore Licata. Licata is accused of viewing naked Asian women on his computer and showing the images to four juveniles.

The four male children stated that Licata walked past them as they were seated poolside at the motel.

He allegedly showed them pornographic videos and asked them, "Don’t you like this?"

When questioned by police, Licata reportedly told them that he was on a website where you pay to talk with Asian girls. He said he was turning the computer around so that she could see the pool.

Licata was arrested for four counts of furnishing obscene materials to minors.
