Police: Man offered kids money to expose themselves
A Huntington store clerk is accused of trying to get young children to expose themselves to him.
Police say Bipinkumar Patel offered to give four children money if they showed him their underwear and private parts.
They say it happened when the kids, who are between 11 and 14 years old, went into the Jericho Convenience store on Jericho Turnpike Friday night. The two boys and two girls called police after the alleged encounter.
Patel, however, denies the allegations. He says the kids were cursing in the store and he threw them out.
Patel was arrested and released. He is charged with four counts of child endangerment and is due in court in July.
