A Brentwood man faces criminal trespassing charges for entering a Nassau County school earlier this month without authorization, Nassau County police said Tuesday.

Frank Fellini, 29, of 39 Fourth Ave., is suspected of entering Our Lady of Victory School in Floral Park through the front door about 1 p.m. on June 8, then walking down the stairs into a men's bathroom during a fire drill, police said.

Faculty members then saw the man and attempted to stop him but he fled the school, police said.

A police spokeswoman Tuesday said she had no further information on the arrest.

Sean Dolan, a spokesman for the Diocese of Rockville Centre, said last week the man wandered around the school at 2 Bellmore St. for about five minutes.

Dolan said school visitors are required to enter through a specified door with a buzzer as well as signing in and out. But the man entered through an unlocked front door for students.

Fellini was issued an appearance ticket for third-degree criminal trespassing and was released.

He is scheduled to appear at First District Court in Hempstead on June 30.
