(KMOV.com) -- A St. Louis business owner is accused of luring two young children into his business, molesting and sodomizing them.

According to court documents, Hakeem Rasheen, 62, operates Union Motors in North St. Louis City. His business is near the boys' bus stop and it's there where he allegedly lured the five and eight year old boys into his business, by giving them money and snacks.

“I can't even believe we have somebody like that that stays in the neighborhood because we don't usually have those type of problems around here,” said Tijuana Moore, who lives near Union Motors.

Rasheen now faces three counts of statutory sodomy, two counts of attempted sodomy and one count of child molestation. Rasheen is accused of threatening and forcing the boys to perform the sexual acts.

“If it's that easy for kids to get off the bus and somebody lure them into their business during school hours, while it's daylight outside,” said Moore. “If he felt that confident, there is no telling what else he might have done.”

Rasheen's bond has been set at $400,000 cash only. Court documents show he has two prior criminal convictions of possession of a controlled substance and stealing.
