YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Authorities arrested a Passaic man after a 14-year-old Wallington girl reported seeing him masturbating in a nearby driveway as she walked to school – two weeks after he was reported spotted in a similar incident.

Tomas Flores, 26, was being held on $100,000 in the Bergen County Jail following his arrest yesterday.

The call called 911 and provided a description to Wallington police, who immediately responded and found Flores across the street, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said late this afternoon.

A detective from Molinelli’s Special Victims Unit interviewed the girl at Wallington police headquarters, after which Flores was charged, the prosecutor said.

On May 6, two girls – one 12 and the other 13 – told detectives that they saw Flores masturbating in the same area, Molinelli said.

Flores, who the prosecutor said is single and works as a custodian, is charged with one count of sexual assault, two of criminal sexual contact and three of child endangerment. A June 2 arraignment was scheduled.
