VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. -- A man was arrested Friday after he allegedly exposed himself to a 13- and 14-year-old girl, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say 53-year-old Michael East was sitting on his back porch in the 1400 block of Avenue C when he showed the young girls his genitals.

Deputies say the girls were playing hide-n-seek in a backyard when one of them looked in East's direction and saw his private part. The other girl told deputies she also witnessed him expose himself.

The girls immediately ran inside and told a parent what happened, according to VCSO. When the parent confronted East, he took off on foot but authorities say he wasn't gone for long.

By the time officials began their investigation, East had returned to the area. East admitted exposing himself during questioning.

East was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail in Daytona Beach on $20,000 bond. He was charged with two counts of lewd or lascivious exhibition.
