A Queens man is accused of sexually abusing three girls at a Brooklyn army base after the crimes were uncovered several years later, according to the FBI.

Fausto Bonifaz, 39, allegedly coerced and enticed the victims, whose ages ranged from 12 to 13, into engaging in sexual activity with him while at the Fort Hamilton Army Base.

Bonifaz was a civilian who was admitted to the base because he worked with one of the victim’s mothers and had access to her house, officials said.

The acts were committed between September 2009 and September 2010, according to the New York Post.

The acts were later uncovered when one of the victims reported the abuse to a counselor.

According to the Post, that girl was the daughter of the woman from the base, and the other victims were her friends.

Before his arrest, Bonifaz admitted to FBI agents that he had sexually abused one of the victims and signed a written statement detailing the abuse, officials said.

He denied sexually abusing the other girls when he spoke with federal agents on Thursday, the Post reported. But he did say “not all 12-year-old girls are the same” when faced with the allegations.
