A Great Neck man who police said exposed himself to a girl walking home from school on Wednesday has been arrested and charged with public lewdness.

Nassau County police said Jefferson Ramirez, 26, approached the 11-year-old girl as she was walking on West End Avenue at around 4 p.m.

“Ramirez, after unzipping his pants, exposed himself to her,” police said in a news release.

The girl ran to a neighbor’s house, where the police were summoned, police said.

Officers who responded to the 911 call found Ramirez “a short distance” away and arrested him, police said.

Besides first-degree public lewdness, he was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child, police said.

Ramirez is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in First District Court in Hempstead. No defense attorney or bail status was listed for him in online court records.
