HANCOCK, Maine — A local man is facing charges after he allegedly exposed himself to two young boys, according to police.

Joseph Torrey, 20, was baby-sitting the two boys in October at a home in Hancock when the alleged incident occurred, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department indicated Thursday in a brief prepared statement. The boys’ mother contacted police to report the incident.

Detective Steve McFarland of the Hancock County District Attorney’s Office investigated the incident and on Wednesday arrested Torrey on two counts of visual sexual aggression against a child, according to the sheriff’s department.

Information about whether Torrey was still being held Thursday at Hancock County Jail in Ellsworth was not immediately available.
