Man Accused of Abuse, Inappropriate Conduct Involving 2 Minors

A Huntington Station man was arrested Monday and accused of abusing one minor and sending inappropriate measures to another.

Thomas Costas, 50, is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday on charges of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child 2nd Degree, Stalking 4th Degree, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. 

Suffolk County police said an 11-year-old girl, with her family, told them on Oct. 9 that she had received inappropriate texts from Costas between January and July.

On Oct. 10, a second woman reported that Costas had sexually assaulted her over the course of three years from September 2007 through June 2010, when she was between 10 and 13 years old.

After investigating, Second Squad detectives and Second Precinct Crime Section officers arrested Costas Monday at his home. He is a known acquaintance to the families of both victims.

The investigation is ongoing and detectives are asking anyone who believes they may have been a victim to contact Second Squad detectives at 631-852-8252.
