Young Boy Lured by Man in Ramapo

According to Ramapo Police, a 25-year old man was arrested last week for allegedly attempting to sexually molest a young boy. Police Sargent Brian Corbett stated that Abraham Widenbaum, who lives in a group home for developmentally disabled adults, was charged with first-degree attempted sexual abuse and luring a child, a felony, and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child, when he used candy to lure the 6-year old boy from his yard on Wedesday evening to an empty room at a nearby synagogue. According to police the boy ran home when he was asked to bring back a friend and informed his parents. Police found Widenbaum on Friday evening, and arrested him without releasing details of what occurred in the room, and held him at Rockland County Jail on $75,000 bail. He will return to court on Tuesday. The arrest follows unrelated reports of attempted lurings in Nanuet and Blauvelt and police urge that parents remain vigilant with their children.
