FARMINGDALE - Police have arrested a man accused of grabbing a teenage girl's foot in Farmingdale earlier this week. Authorities say Carlos Sanchez, 28, of Massapequa, is facing child endangerment charges over the incident. News 12 Long Island spoke exclusively with the teen victim. Christina Alfieri, 16, says she and her 17-year-old friend were sitting on the swings in a park when Sanchez approached them. She says he grabbed her foot, started massaging it, and then started kissing it. She says he was also trying to lick her foot. Alfieri says her friend whipped out her cell phone and took a short video of the incident, which helped police track down Sanchez. According to police, Sanchez also approached three girls Tuesday in Farmingdale and asked them if they wanted their feet massaged. In court today, Sanchez's lawyer says he has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. A judge released Sanchez and ordered him to stay away from the teen victims.
