He's accused of forcing two young girls to watch porn and exposing himself to those girls.

 Joseph Sturgill, Warsaw, faces felony charges, and according to his neighbors they aren't surprised.

 Michael Hively lives with his children in a downtown Warsaw apartment across from a church playground, above him lives Joseph Strugill.   He was arrested Thursday for exposing himself and forcing young girls only 7 and 8 years old to watch porn with him. 

 “My suspicions were right and in my mind he was trying to do something with my kids,” said Hively. 

 Hively was suspicious because he says Sturgill showed a lot of interest in his children and even asked his daughter extremely inappropriate questions.

 “He asked my daughter if she was going to take a shower,” said Hively. 

 Acceding to Warsaw Police, the young girls are family friends with Sturgill and his wife.  We stopped by Sturgill’s apartment, but he wasn’t home. 

 Warsaw Police say if you are ever in a similar situation to speak up.

 “Just go with you gut feeling if something is wrong make sure they tell an adult if they are a child,” said Lt. Kip Shuter, Public Information Officer. 

Police say more pornographic images were found on Sturgill’s phone.

 Sturgill bonded out of the Kosciusko County Jail Thursday evening.

 “Why should he be out right now? He shouldn’t be out, he should still be locked up,” said Hively. 

 Warsaw Police say they have reason to believe that Sturgill has been involved in several other indecent exposures around the area.  If you have been a victim you are strongly urged to contact the Warsaw police department.
