The trial of a South Bend man accused of molesting two children has begun.

The victims were eight and six years old, according to WNDU.

Tony Arguello is charged with seven counts of child molesting. The victims were six and eight years old relatives of an ex-girlfriend, according to court documents.

One of the victims told his family about the sexual acts that Arguello was forcing him into, and they contacted authorities. Then, the other victim said Arguello assaulted her on a daily basis. He’d bribe her with candy and said he wanted to marry her.
