Authorities have revealed that a man has been arrested for reportedly groping six people at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park in Florida, including teenagers.

According to The Associated Press, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department announced that 27-year-old Aman Bhatia was in the wave pool Sunday at Typhoon Lagoon when he reportedly began groping a woman when the waves crashed over them.

Another victim came forward to reveal Bhatia had grabbed her by the waist in the wave pool, and while she was initially able to free herself, he grabbed her again. Four additional victims reported similar incidents to the police.

When interviewed by investigators, Bhatia told officers that his glasses were broken and he couldn’t see clearly, which resulted in him unintentionally touching people. Authorities in Florida arrested the man and he now faces several charges.

Officials from Disney also announced that Bhatia has been banned from the park.
