A Manhattan man has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a toddler in Riverside Park. Police say that Jason Carroll, 30, was arrested Tuesday around 5:15 p.m. in the vicinity of Riverside Park (in the West 70's). He has been charged with a criminal sex act, sex abuse, and child endangerment for the incident.
According to the News, a good Samaritan spotted him abusing the 2-year-old girl, and alerted a Parks Department employee, who then called the cops. Carroll, who lives near Columbus Circle, allegedly knows the toddler’s mother. They add that cops located the toddler's stroller near the men’s bathroom across from W. 75th Street.
