WESLEY HILLS, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a 25-year-old resident of a Rockland group home for developmentally disabled is accused of luring a 6-year-old boy into a vacant room with candy.

Abraham Widenbaum was arraigned on felony charges of attempted sexual abuse and luring a child.

Ramapo police say he approached the boy outside his home last week and offered him a box of candy. He allegedly walked the child to a nearby synagogue and took him into an empty room.

According to the Journal News (https://lohud.us/1paYuVO ), police declined to say what happened. But police say Widenbaum asked the boy to bring a friend back to the synagogue.

The boy left and reported the incident to his father.

The group home on Hillside Terrace is run by Yedel Chesed. He didn’t return a call seeking comment.
