A bus driver for the MTA who allegedly exposed himself to two young girls in Brooklyn has been arrested, police said.
Matthew Wohlfahrt, 28, was charged with grand larceny, endangering the welfare of a child and public lewdness, the NYPD said.
A 14-year-old girl was walking with a friend near Monday when a man drove up in a minivan, asked her for directions and then exposed himself to her, the NYPD said.
The man was wearing an MTA hat when he exposed himself, police said.
Three days later, the same man was sitting in an SUV on Colonial Road around 4:30 p.m. wearing a light blue button-down shirt with an MTA patch on the shoulder when he asked an 11-year-old girl for directions to McDonald's, the NYPD said.
The man asked the girl if she could come inside the car to help him with the directions, according to police.
When she started to approach the car, he exposed himself to her, police said.
The MTA said he was a probationary employee and he has been taken out of service without pay.
It wasn't immediately clear whether Wohlfahrt had an attorney.
