Authorities say a 24-year old man with ties to a youth football team is under arrest for sexually assaulting two young boys. They fear there are more.

Police tell us a 24 year old North Philadelphia man is charged with rape and sexual abuse of 2 children this past weekend. We've also learned the suspect worked with kids in a Northeast Philadelphia Youth Football League.

Police say Leon Watson sexually assaulted 2 boys 8 and 9 years old that were left in his care this past weekend. They say assaults happened inside his home on the 2400 block of Diamond Street.

The District Attorney's office says Watson was a part time assistant at a Northeast Philadelphia Youth Football League, The Rhawnhurst Raiders. He also formed his own team called the "Little Vicks".

One neighbor of Watson tells us he often sees young boys outside his home.

Watson is charged with 17 crimes including rape, deviant sexual intercourse. He's currently being held on a $250,000 bond.

Investigators say they know of at least 1 other victim. They are urging parents from any of the teams to contact police.
