Child Bicycle Sex-Offender Busted

Police last week arrested a bicycle-riding pervert who lowered his pants and exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl in Ridgewood on October 2.

Ops said the pervert pedaled up to the girl near Seneca Avenue and Stephen Street in Ridgewood at about 4 p.m. on October 2, and asked if she had a piece of paper.

When the girl reached into her backpack and turned to hand the paper to the man, his pants were pulled down and his genitals were exposed, police said.

The girl ran home and told her mother who alerted police.

Cops said a tipster led them to Christopher Carrero, 23, of Brooklyn, who was charged in a half dozen public lewdness incidents that occurred over the past six months.

In each of the incidents, Carrero pulled up to girls ages 11 and 15 years old and asked for a piece of paper, police said. He would then expose his genitals to the girls when they handed him the paper.

Carrero was charged with six counts of child endangerment and public lewdness at his arraignment, prosecutors said.
