A man has been arrested after deputies claimed that he inappropriately touched a child at the Magic Kingdom, according to WFTV.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says that 50 year-old James Jones was arrested after an incident at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square was reported. It was there where Jones allegedly touched a child inappropriately. The child then told their parents, who then reported the incident to guest relations. The deputies were then called, and found and arrested Jones.

At the same time, deputies were also investigating an incident where a guest inappropriately touched another child as they were exiting the stretching room preshow area at The Haunted Mansion. Investigators believe that Jones is the suspect in this incident as well.

According to a report, Jones was charged with lewd or lascivious molestation. The case remains under investigation.
