“She told her mother and then her mother took cell phone pictures of the subject — several pictures of him as he was leaving the store,” Det. Lt. Tom O’Heir told 1010 WINS.

Five days later, police said two 13-year-old girls witnessed Sanchez masturbating in a parked car in front the Setauket Elementary School.

Sanchez, who is a level two sex offender, is charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, exposure of a person and public lewdness.
