Cedarhurst man accused of forcibly touching teen girl

A Cedarhurst man is accused of forcibly touching a 15-year-old girl on his front porch.



Police say the incident occurred on Grove Avenue in Cedarhurst earlier this month.



They say a 15-year-old girl was walking along the avenue when Jaime Martinez, 69, called her over.



Police say when she sat down next to him, he put his hand on her leg, tried to raise her skirt and kissed her on the mouth.



Martinez was arrested on Monday.



Martinez' attorney says his client denies the accusations.
