L.I. Stop & Shop Clerk Accused Of Exposing Himself To 2 Young Girls Inside Store

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A Long Island supermarket employee is accused of sexually abusing  two girls who were shopping with their mother.

On Nov. 24, store clerk Edward Ramirez, 43, exposed himself to a 5-year-old girl and her 7-year-old sister at the Stop & Shop located at 177 Forest Ave. in Glen Cove, police said.

The girls were in an aisle next to their mother when Ramirez exposed himself to the 7 year old, police said.

When she ran to tell her mother what happened, he exposed himself to the 5-year-old girl and forced her to touch him, police said.

She too then ran to find her mother.

Ramirez was arrested Tuesday and charged with sexual abuse in the first degree and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Detectives want to hear from anyone who feels that their child may have been a victim of Ramirez to contact the Glen Cove Police Department at (516) 676-1000, or the Special Victims Squad at (516) 573-4022.
