An Ithaca man, charged with rape four years ago, was arrested Saturday (August 10) for exposing himself and masturbating in front of two young children during eye exams at the America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses location on South Meadow Street.
Ithaca Police arrested 24-year-old employee Nicholas Vicioso, originally of Staten Island and now living on Danby Road in Ithaca.
He’s been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one for Public lewdness.
Police say they have reason to believe the incidents are not isolated.
Vicioso was arrested by Cortland Police four years ago on first degree rape charges related to an incident with a SUNY Cortland student while he attended TC3. (Read that story from September 2015 by clicking this link)
