Police say a school bus driver from Huntington Station has been charged with sexual abuse.

Charles Titone III, 46, was arrested Tuesday morning at his home on Depot Road. Police say they were acting on a tip.

Titone, who works for Huntington Coach Corporation, allegedly had sexual contact with a 6-year-old child.

Police say the victim was not a student from Titone's bus route in the Northport-East Northport school district.

Investigators say they also found child pornography on Titone's cellphone.
