Borough Park, NY - The man that flashed a 7-year-old girl at the corner of 52nd Street and 11th Avenue in Borough Park at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, and a half-hour later, he allegedly exposed himself to two more girls, one 5 and one 6, and allegedly touched the 6-year-old before fleeing, has been identified as Constantine Kotzalides, 49, that served six years in prison for robbery.

Kotzalides, was arrested Thursday 10 minutes later, in what Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said a mother of one of the girls saw it all happen and alerted authorities.

"The mother of one of the girls sees this individual, sees him leave, gets the description of the car and the plate number," said Kelly. "And this is given to the police, actually the Shomrim patrol, who was very helpful in this investigation. I believe they were the ones who first spotted the car, called the police and the individual was arrested."
