KINGSTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A man was arrested after police say he tried to entice a 15-year-old girl into performing sex acts at the Kingston Collection shopping mall on Sunday night.
Martin Rosa, 52, of Worcester is facing a charge of enticing a child under the age of 16, according to the Kingston Police Department.
Officers responding to a 911 call from a 13-year-old who reported a disturbance at the mall spoke with witnesses and learned the man had attempted to entice a 15-year-old girl into sex acts, police said.
“The act was not completed, thanks to the appropriate response from the victim and a group of juveniles,” the department said in a Facebook post. “Great work by dispatch, patrol, mall security, and especially the juveniles who called and provided detailed witness statements.”
Rosa was arraigned in Plymouth District Court on two counts of enticing a child under 16 and one count of accost/annoy another person.
An investigation remains ongoing.
