A city man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly luring three children into his vehicle in two separate incidents, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
David Cardona, 26-year-old, has been charged with three counts of second-degree luring and enticing children; second-degree sexual assault; and third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
In the first incident, Cardona is accused of luring an 11-year-old girl into his motor vehicle and exposing himself to her in August 2017. In the second incident, Cardona allegedly lured two girls, 11 and 13, into his motor vehicle in October 2017, authorities said.
Cardona could face a maximum of 45 years in state prison if found guilty of the charges.
