NEW YORK, May 8 (UPI) -- An off-duty New York City school guard, naked from the waist down, allegedly called two 13-year-old girls to his car and offered them $20, authorities said.
William Clay, 36, allegedly told the girls, who were standing at a bus stop near a middle school in the Springfield Gardens neighborhood of Queens, "All you have to do is just stand there and look sexy," the New York Daily News reported.
Before fleeing, one of the disgusted teens jotted down Clay's license plate number, allowing police to track him down, a law enforcement source said.
Police said Clay has been suspended by the city.
Ted Noel, 55, who answered the door yesterday at Clay's Queens home, defended his friend. "What I can tell you is that it's false," Noel said, insisting Clay was at work when the girls were flashed.
Clay was arrested Friday and arraigned Saturday on charges of harassment, endangering the welfare of a child and public lewdness.
He faces up to a year in prison if convicted, said a spokeswoman for Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.
A judge released Clay but ordered him to stay away from the alleged victims.
