Police say a Grand Junction man molested at least three young girls and is now behind bars facing 66 charges.

Mesa County deputies arrested 36–year–old Nerio "Ned" Martinez Friday afternoon.

They say he sexually assaulted the children at least 17 times over a three year period.

In an interview with investigators, Martinez denied the allegations and said the girls were making it up.

He's being held in the Mesa County jail on a $300,000 bond.
