Off-duty NYPD cop arrested for allegedly flashing two young girls in the Bronx has done it before


The search for a flasher accused of exposing himself to two young sisters on their way to a Bible study in the Bronx led police to one of their own, cops said Tuesday. Police arrested Officer Adam Fridson, 43, early Tuesday on charges of public lewdness and acting in a manner injurious to a child in the Oct. 4 encounter on E. Tremont Ave. near Bakley Ave. in Schuylerville. The sickening incident wasn’t the first time Fridson was accused of exposing himself to a child, police sources said. About seven years ago, he did the same thing at a Costco in Westchester, police sources said, but he was not arrested because the child’s mother didn’t want to pursue charges and have her child traumatized. In the most recent case, Fridson was seen on surveillance video wearing a “Nightmare Before Christmas” T-shirt as he stepped out of a light-colored Subaru and approached the sisters, ages 7 and 12, at about 4:10 p.m., cops said. The girls were headed to Bible study at a nearby church, assistant District Attorney Allison Riesel said. “The entire incident is caught on video,” Riesel said. “He got out of car, unzipped his fly, took out his penis and approached the two young girls.” R train flasher surrenders after exposing himself to 3 women At first, he covered his privates with a jacket, but he pulled it away, exposing himself to the girls, according to police. “Do you know where McDonald’s is?” he asked the sisters, according to a criminal complaint. He then jumped back into his car and sped off, cops said. The girls walked to the church and found their mother, who called 911. Police released surveillance video Saturday and detectives received a tip from an off-duty cop identifying Fridson as the flasher, according to authorities. Police ultimately connected the dots through the Subaru’s license plate — which was identified as Fridson’s personal vehicle. Sicko in kids movie shirt exposes himself to young girls in Bronx Fridson, who walked into court Tuesday afternoon with a hangdog expression on his face, wore an open black windbreaker, navy pants and no handcuffs. Bronx Criminal Court Judge Patsy Goulbourne ordered him held on $5,000 bail and placed into protective custody. His lawyer, Richard H. B. Murray, declined a psychiatric evaluation during the proceeding. Murray wouldn’t comment to reporters afterward. Fridson joined the department in 2005 and was assigned to the Bronx Housing Bureau until his arrest. He’s been stripped of his badge and gun and placed on modified assignment. During the incident in Westchester, Fridson was moonlighting as a security guard at a Costco when he approached a 9-year-old girl with an apron covering his privates, according to police sources. Staten Island cop arrested for allegedly threatening ex-wife He was seen on video walking up to the girl, who reacted to his presence and ran off. She told a police officer at the scene that she had seen his genitals. When the mom refused to have him arrested, Fridson was brought up on departmental charges. He beat the rap in a 2011 trial after he said the zipper on his pants was broken and his genitals slipped out.
