    A Massachusetts judge on Wednesday decided to keep bail set at $35,000 for Abdulrhman Abduljalil.

    Prosecutors had asked that bail for the 31-year-old Pelham, New Hampshire man be set at $100,000. Prosecutors say the family of the children Abduljalil is charged with sexually assaulting reported seeing him driving around their neighborhood.

    Authorities say the rapes happened at a Weymouth, Massachusetts home in May.

    Prosecutors say police discovered physical evidence supporting the children's story that Abduljalil had touched them both inappropriately.
