AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – An Amsterdam man has been arrested for allegedly exposing himself to a woman in a parking lot on Monday. Police say a female employee of St. Mary’s Hospital was approached in the parking lot on the corner of Route 5 and Lower Steadwell Avenue. The man spoke to the woman in “repeated sexual overtones” as she got into her car. Police say he then exposed and began to touch himself while grabbing at the woman’s car door. She quickly drove away.

The suspect was arrested on Wednesday and identified as 19-year-old Nelson Quinones, of Amsterdam.

Quinones was charged with Public Lewdness and sent to the Montgomery County Jail on $1,500 cash bail or $3,000 bond. Additional charges may be pending.

Police believe it was an isolated incident, but if anyone believes they have had similar contact with Quinones, they are urged to contact the Amsterdam Police Department at (518) 842-1100.
