A Tierra Verde man was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of sexual battery on two children, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.
Matthew Michalik, 32, abused two children -- ages 4 and 6 -- who he knew. The victims told investigators that he abused them Tuesday morning while they were in his care, the sheriff’s office said.
Detectives met with Michalik, but he denied the allegations, the sheriff’s office said.
Michalik was booked into the Pinellas County Jail.
The case remains under investigation.
