CEBU -- An Australian man was arrested after allegedly abusing at least 20 minors in a resort in Cordova, Cebu, police said Tuesday.

The suspect was identified as 50-year-old Peter James Robinson, a mechanical engineer.

One of the minors went to the Municipal Social Welfare Department and reported that Robinson made them dance naked while taking pictures of them.

Robinson reportedly rented two rooms at the Cordova Home Village Resort where the minors were rescued.

However, the Australian denied the allegations, saying he just invited the minors over for lunch.

Authorities confiscated a laptop believed to contain the minors' nude photos.

Records showed that Robinson has been in the country four times within two years, and has been staying in Cordova for four days.
