NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A 42-year-old Brooklyn man has been arrested for allegedly exposing himself to multiple girls in Queens.

Eddie Rodriguez, of Crown Heights, faces charges of stalking, luring a child to commit a crime, acting in a manner injurious to a child, public lewdness and harassment.

Police say he drove up to a 14-year-old girl in Flushing last month and asked to use her phone because he was lost. He allegedly started masturbating before returning the phone and fleeing the scene.

Then on Monday, police say he drove up to a 12-year-old in Corona and asked to use her phone.

The girl gave him her phone, but when she asked for it back, police say he exposed himself to her and asked her to get into his Nissan Sentra.

He gave the phone back to her and took off when a passerby intervened, according to police.

Rodriguez faces up to a year behind bars if convicted of public lewdness, endangering the welfare of a child, larceny and harassment.
