MADERIA, Ohio -- Police arrested a man Friday accused of engaging in sexual conduct with two children more than a decade ago.

Sidney Fleischmann, 56, admitted to detectives that he engaged in sexual contact with the children, who were both under 13, between 2000 and 2004, police said in court records.

Fleischmann was charged with two counts of rape.

In court Saturday, Fleischmann's attorney said his client had "no idea what this is about." A judge set Fleischmann's bond at $500,000 on each count and ordered him to stay away from the two alleged victims.
