Queens Parks Manager Accused of Sexually Abusing Child, NYPD Says
QUEENS — A manager for the Queens Parks Department was arrested Sunday for allegedly sexually abusing a minor family member several years ago, police said.
Herrera abused his female relative, who was 11-years-old at the time, on three occasions, between October 2008 and September 2009, according to the criminal complaint.
A number of questions remain unanswered, including her relationship to Herrera and what prompted the police to make the arrest Sunday.
Herrera has been suspended without pay, a Parks Department spokesman said in an email.
Herrera's attorney could not be immediately reached for comment.
