LEVITTOWN - A Levittown man is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 12-year-old boy.
Police arrested Joseph Tucciarone, 54, on Friday. He is facing charges of endangering the welfare of a child and sexual conduct against a child.
Tucciarone allegedly befriended the boy last September, luring him with candy. Police say the relationship eventually turned sexual in nature. When the boy's parents found out, they notified police.
Neighbors say Tucciarone kept to himself and didn't bother anyone. Police say Tucciarone isn't married, has no kids and works as a truck driver.
He is expected to be arraigned Saturday.
Anyone with information on this crime or any other possible victims is asked to call the Special Victims Squad at 516-573-4022.
