THE BRONX — An off-duty NYPD officer was arrested for exposing himself to two young sisters — who were headed to Bible study class — in Throgs Neck while asking them for directions to a fast-food spot, according to police and prosecutors.
Adam Fridson — a 12-year veteran who patrolled public housing in The Bronx — asked the two girls, 12 and 7, for directions to McDonald’s while exposing himself on East Tremont Avenue on Oct. 11, an NYPD spokesman said.
"Did you see that man?" the 12-year-old sister asked before the girls walked to a nearby church and called their mother, according to the criminal complaint.
The 43-year-old was busted in Downtown Manhattan Tuesday morning after police released video showing him wearing a black T-shirt featuring the character Jack Skellington from the movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” police said.
Frisdon was charged with two counts each of acting in a manner injurious to a child, lewdness and exposing himself.
He was suspended without pay following his arrest, the spokesman said. Fridson's bail was set at $5,000 after his arraignment in Bronx Criminal Court Tuesday afternoon.
Police did not have information on any prior disciplinary actions he may have faced.
Fridson's lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
He is due back in court on Oct. 20.
