Police nabbed a Brooklyn man for the alleged sexual assault of two young girls in their Queens apartment building.

On November 12, around 7:10 p.m., the suspect entered a Jackson Heights apartment building and went into the laundry room, said police, where he sexually assaulted two girls, aged 4 and 9.

Mario Lopez, 52, was arrested and charged with sex abuse and endangering the welfare of a child among other charges.

The area’s councilmember, Daniel Dromm, planned to hand out leaflets with a photo of the suspect today to raise awareness of the incident.

“We will not tolerate a crime of this nature in our community,” said Dromm.
