Man accused of faking having Down syndrome so women would bathe him

An Arizona man has been charged after pretending to have Down syndrome so female caregivers would bathe him.

Police say Paul Menchacha also got the women to change his diapers, CBS News reports.

He's been charged with multiple counts of sex abuse and fraud, after being accused of getting aroused during the bathing sessions.

Menchacha allegedly hired the women via the internet, and met them at different locations. His ruse unravelled when one of the caregivers got suspicious and visited his home, where she found his parents - who confirmed he did not have Down syndrome and is capable of looking after himself just fine.

Until recently he was employed by a school in a staff support role.
