A Freeport man was arrested on Sunday at 8:53 a.m. in Rockville Centre for allegedly inappropriately touching a coffee shop employee.

According to a release by the the Nassau County Police Department, Robert Tomo, 35, entered a coffee shop in the village at noon on July 30. Shortly thereafter, he allegedly approached a 21-year-old female from behind and touched her inappropriately.

Police said Tomo, who is a regular patron at the establishment, was told by the employee that his behavior was not OK and he left the business. The next day, he returned to the coffee shop and the employee recognized him and called the police. Rockville Centre police responded and placed him under arrest without incident.

Tomo was charged with two counts of forcible touching, one count of third-degree sexual abuse and one count of fourth-degree stalking. He was arraigned Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.

Detectives request that anyone who feels they may have been a victim of a similar incident contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 244-8477. All callers will remain anonymous.
