An East Meadow convenience store worker who is accused of sexual contact with a 13-year-old was arraigned on charges Thursday.
Police say Motia Abdallah, of New Hyde Park, met with the victim while working at Exotic Convenience store. They say the abuse began in January and continued into May.
According to authorities, Abdallah also went by the name Timone and may have more victims.
As News 12 reported, last September the convenience store was shut down after police say it was illegally selling chocolate bars with THC, magic mushrooms and marijuana.
The store was later reopened and according to neighbors, it is still a problem.
Abdallah, 43, is facing several charges including sexual act in the second degree, sexual abuse in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child.
He remains behind bars and is being held on $100,000 cash or $200,000 bond.
Anyone who believes they may have been victimized by Abdallah is asked to call Nassau County Special Victims Squad at 516-573- 4022.
