Florida man arrested for exposing himself

MSD urges parents to reinforce safety protocols

The Massapequa School District reached out to parents on Friday, informing them of an incident of public lewdness that occurred in days earlier in North Massapequa and cautioning them to review basic stranger safety protocols with their children.

The Nassau County Police Department’s 2nd Squad detectives reported the incident and said they arrested a Florida man for public lewdness and endangering the welfare of a child in North Massapequa shortly after 5 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 3.

According to detectives, Jason Good, 35, of 1645 19th St. SW, Vero Beach, was operating a black 2006 Jeep, with a Florida license plate, and approached a 13-year-old female victim who was riding her bicycle on Hicksville Road and Thorne Avenue. Good allegedly exposed himself to her.  The victim took out her cell phone and took a picture of the defendant’s license plate, causing him to flee in his vehicle.

Second Squad detectives placed the defendant under arrest at the Second Squad on Thursday, Aug. 12 at noon.  Good is being charged with public lewdness, endangering the welfare of a child and was arraigned Friday at First District Court, Hempstead.

In her letter, Iconis told parents that students should be reminded to avoid going near or entering any vehicles of those not known to them, and to report such instances immediately to a responsible adult.

“Working together we can ensure the safety of our children both in and out of school,” she wrote.
