PORTLAND, Maine — Authorities have arrested a 41-year-old Baldwin man they say gave girls under the age of 18 money and drugs to perform sexual acts on each other in his presence.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office announced that Robert Brower was arrested Thursday on multiple prostitution and drug related charges.

He is being held on $25,000 bail pending arraignment scheduled for Friday.

Police say the alleged sex acts occurred within the past several months at Brower’s home and were referred to police by state child welfare officials by someone who was legally required to report possible child sexual abuse.

Police did not give the exact ages of the girls but said they are from the Portland area.

It was not clear if Brower had a lawyer.
