Suspect Charged in Connection with Molesting 8-Year-Old Girl on Essex Street
The man suspected of sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl in the courtyard of the Seward Park Extension last month is now in custody.
On June 3, at around 7:40pm, the suspect approached the girl who was in the courtyard of 64 Essex Street. The man started flirting, then proceeded to grab the girl’s crotch “over her clothes” before running off.
Cops yesterday arrested Lower East Side resident Daniel Young, 30, for the crime. He is reportedly charged with sexual abuse and acting in a manner injurious to a child.
