NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A suspected serial flasher has been arrested and charged.
Christopher A. Carrero, 23, of Brooklyn, was charged with six counts each of public lewdness and acting in a manner injurious to a child, police said.
Police say he’s targeted ten girls since May, most between the ages of 12 and 14.
Reward fliers with his picture had been plastered all over the neighborhood on utility poles and in the windows of area businesses.
The two most recent incidents happened on the morning of Nov. 2, within five minutes of each other. The first was near a playground on Madison Street and Woodward Avenue.
Minutes later, police said the suspect approached two girls at once near Forest and Gates Avenues.
Nine different incidents happened over the course of several months. The first was on May 11.
The flasher would typically ask one of his victims for a piece of paper. While she’s pulling a sheet out of her backpack, the suspect would drop his pants and expose himself, police said. Then he’d ride off.
