Centereach man accused of molesting teenage boys

A Centereach man is accused of luring two teenage boys into his car and molesting them.

Police say 50-year-old Syed Ahmed offered two teenagers a ride Thursday outside of Centereach High School and took them to a mall parking lot where he molested them. The boys ran and called the police and later identified Ahmed. Police say Ahmed was questioned earlier in the week for talking to kids outside the high school.

Ahmed is charged with two counts of forcibly touching and endangering the welfare of a minor.
