CLEARWATER BEACH (FOX 13) -

Clearwater police have charged a 71-year-old man with sexually abusing a disabled teenager at Sand Key Park.

Investigators say Robert Mullins waited until the boy's father left the area with his other son. He then went up to the boy -- who has cerebral palsy -- and started rubbing tanning oil on his body, including his private area.

Mullins stopped what he was doing when other people on the beach saw what was happening.

Police say the family is from Germany and that the boy, age 16, speaks little English.

Mullins is being held at the Pinellas County Jail and faces one count of lewd and lascivious battery of a disabled person.
