A man allegedly exposed himself to a teenager but was caught after the girl got his license plate number and told her parents.
According to the Suffolk County Police Department, the suspect, Arshad Syed Humzah, was driving a 2010 Nissan north on Boyle Road in Selden, at Strauss Avenue, at about 5 p.m. on April 10 when he approached a teenager walking along the road. The man allegedly asked the girl, 15, if she wanted a ride and when she declined, he allegedly kept following her with his car. Police said he then stopped again and asked the teenager for directions.
When the girl approached him, Syed Humzah allegedly exposed his genitals to her.
Police said the teen noted his license plate number and told her parents when she got home. Her parents called the police and the suspect was arrested shortly afterward.
Syed Humzah was charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Attorney information for the defendant was not immediately available. He was scheduled to be arraigned at a later date.
