MECHANIC ACCUSED IN SEX ABUSE OF TEENAGE GIRL
Victor A. Gutierrez, a 53 year old West Hempstead auto-body shop worker, repeatedly sexually abused a 13 year old girl. What began as a simple hello between strangers grew into inappropriate kissing and touching by Gutierrez. The alleged abuse, which occurred in Farmingdale between January and June 2005, was revealed Thursday when the girl, now 14, told her parents and they called police. Gutierrez was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and first degree and second degree sexual abuse. He was ordered held in the Nassau County jail on bail of $50,000 bond and $25,000 cash at his arraignment yesterday.
