Suffolk police say four high school girls kept their wits about them in an uncomfortable situation, leading to the arrest of a Manorville man late Monday.
According to police, four members of the Sayville High School track team were running on Saxton Avenue just before 4 p.m. when 58-year-old Stephen Sexton approached them in his car. Sexton allegedly offered the teenagers a ride several times, driving alongside them slowly. Police say two of the girls memorized Sexton's license plate number and wrote it in the dirt, which investigators later used to discover Sexton's identity.
Police arrested Sexton at about 10:55 p.m. and charged him with four counts of first-degree harassment. Each count carries a sentence of up to one year in prison.
