BABYLON, N.Y. — Police arrested a man who allegedly solicited sex from a young teen on Long Island earlier this month.
Andrew Quattrone was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon following an arrest warrant with charges of criminal solicitation and endangering the welfare of a child, police said.
Police said Quattrone, 38, approached a girl, 15, at a parking lot behind 24 East Main St. in Babylon on May 13.
He had approached the teen at the lot and handed her a cellphone with a pre-typed sexually explicit message for her to read, requesting her to perform a sex act, according to police.
When the victim’s friend walked over, Quattrone fled.
He was arrested nearly two weeks later.
