A Paterson man accused of luring children into his car on two separate occasions has been charged with multiple counts, including sexual assault, in connection with the incidents, officials said Friday.
David Cardona is charged with three counts of second-degree luring or enticing a child, one count of second-degree sexual assault and one count of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
Authorities said Cardona allegedly lured an 11-year-old girl into a vehicle and exposed himself to her in August. He also allegedly lured two girls, ages 11 and 13, into a vehicle earlier this month.
If convicted on all count, he faces a maximum of 25 years in prison.
Anyone who has information relating to the incidents is asked to contact Paterson police Detective Ricardo Vazquez at 973-321-1120.
