Accused of directing kiddie porn, neighbor thought NYPD cop was “gentleman”

(Queens, New York) A long-time neighbor of NYPD Sergeant, Alberto Randazzo, said “I was ready to faint”– when she learned the fifteen year police veteran had just been busted for directing kiddie porn videos from his 3rd floor apartment on 31st Avenue in Astoria.

“He was a perfect gentleman, in my opinion,” said Ann Keeffe, an Irish immigrant who has known Randazzo the last, five years.

Keeffe told PIX 11 she was surprised when about 20, police investigators showed up at their apartment building last Friday, heading up the stairs to Randazzo’s apartment, where the cop lived alone.  “They were up and down…I saw computers going out.”

According to a police complaint, detectives found 11 pornographic videos on Randazzo’s computer, where he was directing a naked, female adult to sexually abuse an infant in diapers–and another little boy who was no more than one or two years old.

“Put your hand inside of his diaper,” a voice identified as Randazzo’s directs the woman in one video.  “Talk dirty to him.”

“Put your hand inside of his diaper,” a voice identified as Randazzo’s directs the woman in one video. “Talk dirty to him.”

Police said they also found two videos where adult men were molesting a girl between the age of 8 and 10 years old.

In one, the girl was performing oral sex on a man.

The investigators also reported finding seven images on the computer, of an adult female engaging in sexual acts

with an infant boy.

Randazzo’s mother and stepfather posted $40,000 bail for him Tuesday, after his arraignment at Queens Criminal Court in Kew Gardens.  The sergeant emerged with his lawyer from court without saying a word.

Ann Keeffe, his neighbor, told PIX 11 that last Friday, before the cops turned up, Randazzo asked the landlord to fix his bathroom toilet–and then made another request.

“He asked me if he could have the key to the basement, so he could use the bathroom there,” Keeffe said.  “Now that I think of it, maybe he was going to hide down there!”  Keeffe said the landlord later reported there was nothing wrong with Randazzo’s apartment bathroom.

Keeffe said the last time she saw Sergeant Randazzo was last Sunday. Randazzo was with his mother.

“I said to the mother ‘You have a great guy. He’s the best!'” Keeffe recalled.  “And the mother said, ‘Yes, I love him. He’s my best.’  And she was carrying his laundry up,” Keeffe said.  “She always did his laundry.”
