Yet another man has been accused by East Hampton town police of sexually abusing a child. Wilson Rolando-Morales, 22, a former East Hampton resident who now lives in Hampton Bays, surrendered to police Thursday, June 6. Stacy Skorupa of the district attorney’s office said during the arraignment of Rolando-Morales, that, when he lived in East Hampton, he had “sexually caressed” a girl under the age of 10. The girl, with whom he was acquainted, was dressed at the time.
Rolando-Morales was charged with a felony, sexual abuse, and a misdemeanor, endangering the welfare of a child.
It was at least the sixth such arrest over the past couple of months made by East Hampton police. Bail of $5000 was posted.
In other news, a Manhattan man, John Detmer, 27, was arrested on Montauk Main Street a little after midnight Saturday, June 8. Police said that Detmer was standing a little west of The Point Bar and Grill when he was spotted dropping a packet of cocaine to the ground. Police said the weight of the narcotic was over half a gram, making the possession charge a felony. He was released Sunday morning after posting $500 bail.
