A 61-year-old man from Stamford, CT, Michael Martin, was arrested Thursday afternoon after he allegedly abused three children at two separate restrooms in Brooklyn parks. The first incident occurred at a park in Gravesend, Brooklyn Thursday, when Martin is accused of following an 8-year-old girl and a 4-year boy into a public restroom where he sexually assaulted them. Later, he is accused of attacking another 8-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Kensington, Brooklyn park. Cops say that Martin ran off on both occasions when the children began to cry.
Martin's been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, sexual abuse and criminal sex acts. The children have been hospitalized as a precautionary measure. Martin was apprehended when the second girl he assaulted screamed at the Diglio Playground and the pervert was nabbed by a civilian patrol.
