ITHACA, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – A 24-year-old man accused of exposing himself to kids was arrested and charged by Ithaca Police Saturday.
Officers responded to the “America’s Best Contact & Eyeglasses” store on South Meadow Street around 10:25 a.m. after receiving a complaint about a man exposing his genitals to kids during a medical exam.
A police investigation found that Nicholas Vicioso, 24, an employee at the store, exposed himself and masturbated in the presence of two young children, but Ithaca Police believe there could be more victims.
Vicioso was taken into custody and later charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and one count of public lewdness. He was arraigned in Ithaca City Court and subsequently remanded to the Tompkins County Jail on $4000 cash / $8000 bond.
Police say this was likely not an isolated incident and they are asking anyone who may have more information or believes they are a victim to contact the Ithaca Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at 607-272-9973, Ext. 1.
