Earlier in the week the Suffolk County Police Department put up information on a cash reward for information leading up to the arrest of a man who exposed himself to an 8-year-old girl at a Target store in Medford on Oct. 10. An arrest has been made today and the man has been identified as Ray Sanchez, 31, of 4 Summercress Lane in Coram.
Sanchez is a registered Level 2 sex offender.
Police have also connected Sanchez to an incident that occurred on Oct. 15 at the Setauket Elementary School, at 134 Main Street in East Setauket.
Two 13-year-old girls reportedly observed him masturbating in a vehicle that was parked in front of the school. The girls reported he made eye contact with them and continued to masturbate as they walked by.
Sanchez now faces charges of endangering the welfare of a child, exposure of a person, and public lewdness. He also faces parole violations.
Sanchez is scheduled to be arraigned in court today.
