BRIDGEPORT -

Police say a man from Bridgeport used Facebook to find young girls whom he later sexually assaulted.

Raymond Ortiz is charged with abusing two sisters who live in the Bronx.

According to the NYPD, Ortiz contacted them on Facebook and shared a video of himself performing a sex act.

In August, when the alleged victims were at a barbecue, police say Ortiz lured them away and assaulted them.

The girls, who are just 8 and 12 years old, told their parents and Ortiz was arrested.
