Police arrest suspected serial flasher from Freeport

FREEPORT -

Nassau police have arrested a 27-year-old Freeport man suspected in a string of incidents in which he allegedly flashed little girls, authorities say.

They say Freddy Peralta exposed himself to young girls on three occasions.

He was known to drive a white 2016 Hyundai Tucson with a spare tire on the front left side, which helped police track him down.

Peralta allegedly flashed a 13-year-old girl and an 11-year-old girl in Baldwin back in February. Police say he also exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl in Uniondale two days ago.

Investigators say there may be additional victims. Nassau police are asking anyone with information on additional incidents to call the First Squad at 516-573-6153.

Peralta faces charges including public lewdness and endangering the welfare of a child. His arraignment was set for Saturday in Hempstead.
