HOLIDAY, Fla. (WFLA) – A man accused of approaching two girls in Holiday and asking them for sex on Thursday has been arrested.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, Matthew Marston was arrested on two counts of lewd and lascivious acts on victims under 16.
The two girls were walking along Ironware Drive near Pleasure Drive, on their way to their bus stop, when Marston allegedly asked for sex.
“They were scared. They were in shock. And they tell me they wish they would have done more. But they were scared,” said the girls’ mother, Jill, who asked we not use her last name.
She said the incident traumatized them and it makes her wonder about safety in the neighborhood.
