A Long Island man was arrested on Tuesday after he allegedly sexually assaulted a teenage boy at inside a Laurelton deli back in November.

46-year-old Xavier Johnson, of Glen Cove, allegedly attacked the 13-year-old boy at the Hands Deli, located at 233-14 Merrick Blvd., at 5:20 p.m. on Nov. 4, 2018.

Police say that Johnson, who went by “Mel”, sexually assaulted the boy, and then allegedly forced the teen to perform a sex act on him. Johnson then allegedly fled the scene.
