A man facing 24 criminal charges related to the repeated sexual assaults of two young girls he knows has not yet turned himself in, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday in Walworth County Court.

Philip D. Mendoza-Vock, 30, no listed address, is accused of inappropriately touching two young girls between September 2013 and August of this year in the village of Bloomfield.

On the same day prosecutors filed the charges, Judge Phillip Koss authorized an arrest warrant for Mendoza-Vock, court records show.

Investigators on Sept. 4 spoke to Mendoza-Vock’s mother, who said she had not seen her son since Aug. 28. She said she did not know where he was, but she sent him a message asking him to turn himself in, according to the complaint.

The last day she saw her son was the same day police went to a village of Bloomfield home and spoke with a man who said his daughters disclosed that Mendoza-Vock had touched them inappropriately, the complaint states. One of the girls said he “molested” her.

The older of the two girls, who could have been as young as 9 during the earliest sexual assaults, described several alleged incidents during an interview at the Tree House Child and Family Center.

After one alleged sexual assault, Mendoza-Vock told the girl she needed to keep it a secret, according to the complaint. He also showed the girl a video of a sex act on his phone.

The second girl detailed other alleged sexual assaults that occurred while she was in first through fourth grade, the complaint states.

The complaint accuses Mendoza-Vock of six separate sex acts with each of the two girls.

Mendoza-Vock faces 12 charges of sexual assault of a child younger than 16, six for each girl, and first-degree sexual assault of a child. He also faces 12 related charges.
