Wal-Mart Employee Charged With Sexually Abusing Child
A typical shopping experience turned to horror last night after an Islip Terrace man was accused of sexually abusing a young boy in an Islandia Walmart. Suffolk County police arrested the man shortly after the incident. 
Matthew Bulmer, 22, an employee of Walmart’s 1850 Veterans Memorial Highway store, allegedly lured the 5-year-old boy away from his mother at approximately 8:45 p.m. The child followed him to the bathroom and the abuse is said to have taken place there. Following an investigation police have charged Bulmer with first-degree sex abuse and acting in a manner to injure a child. He is due in Central Islip’s First District Court court Sunday. 
A Walmart spokesman spoke to CBS News about the incident. 
“We’re clearly concerned about this allegations, and we’re cooperating in all ways that we can with the Suffolk County Police Department,” Lundberg said.
Suffolk County police are asking anyone with information to call their Special Victims Section at 631-852-6184.
Merrick Resident Steals Ambulance
Nassau County police arrested Salvatore Brecciano, of North Merrick, friday for taking a joyride in an ambulance. Investigators claim the 46-year-old took the emergency vehicle from a firehouse when he saw the keys were still in the ignition. Upon entering the ambulance he left a 12-pack of beer in the spot it was taken.
Bracciano’s joyride lasted for about three miles earlier in the month. He was arrested in his Tyrus Court home on Friday after police found a set of ambulance keys in his car. Bracciano has been charged with second-degree larceny.
