HEMPSTEAD - A Roosevelt man accused of preying on men from a male dating site has pleaded not guilty to one charge of prostitution and three charges of felony robbery.

Police say Marquise Utsey, 22, robbed a man he met from the website Adam4Adam on Valentine Street, taking an iPhone and cash.

Police say Utsey robbed another man nearby two days later on New Year's Eve. The third robbery happened three days later just west of Valentine Street.

Utsey was arrested Wednesday when he allegedly agreed to perform sex for cash on an undercover police officer.

Police say Utsey was using the screen name "Huge 12," and are asking anyone who thinks they may be a victim to contact them at 516-573-6152.

Utsey is being held on $60,000 bail.
