PATERSON, N.J. – Authorities on Friday urged other potential victims to come forward after they charged a Paterson man with trying to lure three young girls into his car – and exposing himself to one of them.
David Cardona, 26, tried luring an 11-year-old girl into his car before exposing himself to her in August, then tried luring two more girls – 11 and 13 – last month, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Deputy Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim Baycora said in a joint announcement.
He remained held in the Passaic County Jail early Friday, charged with three counts of luring, one of sexual assault and one of child endangerment, following a detention hearing Thursday.
Anyone with information relating to the arrest is asked to contact Detective Ricardo Vazquez of the Paterson Police Department: (973) 321-1120 .
