Police nab man for public lewdness

? Police say they have arrested a man who exposed himself to students near two different Nassau schools earlier this week.

Twenty-four-year-old George Rigas was arrested near Woodland Junior High School Wednesday.

Rigas allegedly exposed himself to a 17-year-old girl near Mepham High School in North Bellmore Tuesday afternoon. About 15 minutes later, cops say Rigas touched himself in front of students at Woodland Junior High in East Meadow.

During both incidents, police say he was riding a bicycle and rode away when he was spotted.

Residents in the area say they are relieved to hear of the arrest, but say the whole episode is unsettling.
