ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – A youth baseball coach from Wisconsin has been arrested in Florida after deputies say he groped three children at a Disney resort.

News outlets report 26-year-old Nicholas Groth was arrested Thursday on five counts of lewd and lascivious molestation.

Court records show two of the victims are under the age of 12 and one is between 12 and 15. The victims say a man touched their buttocks while they swam at Disney’s Pop Century Resort over the weekend.

Court records say Groth is a coach for a youth baseball team in Racine, Wisconsin, in town for Disney’s International Salute to Baseball Tournament.

It’s unclear if he has an attorney.

It’s the second such incident reported over the past week. Authorities arrested a 27-year-old man after six people, including teenagers, said they were groped at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park Sunday.
