MASSAPEQUA PARK, Long Island (PIX11) — A Lindenhurst man has been arrested after allegedly trying to coerce two teens to film a adult video with him.

Andrew A. Quattrone, 32, was arrested Monday evening in the same parking lot where he allegedly approached two 14-year-old girls.

Detectives say at around 3 p.m. in the parking lot of King Kullen on Merrick Road, he showed the two girls a box of condoms, asked them to be in an adult video with him, then proceeded to show them a pornographic video on his phone. Quattrone allegedly asked them to reconsider even as the girls walked away. They ran to a nearby store and called police.

Quattrone is charged with two counts each of  attempt to Use a Child in a Sexual Performance, Endangering the Welfare of a Child and Criminal Solicitation 3rd degree. He will be arraigned on Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
