Pasco man accused of making advances at two girls, 12 and 14

NEW PORT RICHEY – A 24-year-old man was arrested Friday on charges that he molested two girls.

Michael Scott "Buckwild" Stang approached the girls, ages 12 and 14, on Tuesday afternoon and made a sexual advance, a New Port Richey Police report states.

"Let's go in the bathroom and get freaky," he told them according to the report, which withheld the location of the incident.

The girls told Stang their ages and tried to flee. He followed them under a nearby bridge and grabbed one of the girls' wrist, the police report said. She tried to pull away. There was a struggle, the report states, during which Stang managed to fondle the 14-year-old while asking both girls to have sex with him.

Police caught up Friday with Stang at Main Street Food Mart, 5912 Main St., and arrested him on two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation on a victim under 16. He remained Monday in the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.
