A man from Massachusetts is accused of sexually assaulting two teens in Thompson, according to state police.

It was reported that a 16-year-old female and an 18-year-old female were both sexually assaulted by a man.

Troopers charged him with two counts of second-degree assault.

He was scheduled to face a judge in Danielson on Tuesday.

Vancelette's bond was set at $25,000.
