Bond is set at $100,000 for a LaPorte man accused of molesting two girls.

Dylan Lopez, 26, was arraigned Friday in LaPorte Circuit Court on 11 counts of child molesting, attempted child molesting and child solicitation.

Five of the counts are Level 1 and Class A felonies each carrying a potential minimum 20-year sentence.

. According to court documents, Lopez molested one of the girls from 2011 to 2014 starting when she was five.

The other alleged victim of at least one sexual assault was 10.

Police said Lopez was related to the one of the girls and babysat the other child who is legally blind.

According to court records, police became involved when the youngest girl moved out of state and told her mother and school counselor about the alleged encounters with Lopez.

A warrant was issued for his arrest Monday.

Lopez was booked into the LaPorte County Jail on Thursday.

The next hearing in the case was scheduled for September 28.
