A Virginia father of one-year-old twin girls has been charged with two felony counts after police discovered his children alone in a parked car while he engaged in sexual acts with a woman almost 30 feet away.

Police found 27-year-old Juan Munfort behind a nearby building having sex with a woman while the babies were left in the vehicle with the windows down without a guardian, CBS 6 reports.

“We went around to the back of the duplex and discovered a male and a female engaging in sexual intercourse,” Prince George Police Capt. Brian Kei said. “At that point they [police] made contact with the individual who identified himself as the father of the two twins.”

Munford was charged with two counts of felony child endangerment and indecent exposure. The woman, who is reportedly not the mother of the children, was reportedly released on the scene but also charged with indecent exposure.

Meanwhile, for precautionary measures, the children were taken to a nearby medical center and placed in protective custody while Mumford will spend the remainder of the week in jail.

“There have been so many child deaths in vehicles and parents not paying attention,” one neighbor told CBS after reporting Mumford to the police. “It would be on my conscience.”
