A Wyandanch man has reportedly been accused of sexually abusing a teenager authorities say he robbed in Northport in 2011.

Ariel Perez, 23, was arrested last month and pleaded not guilty at Suffolk County court last week to charges of sexual abuse, criminal sexual act, unlawful imprisonment and robbery, records show.

NBC 4 New York cited an anonymous source in reporting that a tip led MTA police to the suspect who allgedly locked a 16-year-old boy in the bathroom at the Long Island Rail Road station, sexually abused him and robbed him of $110 in August 2011.

Judge Barbara Kahn set bail for Perez at $90,000 cash or $30,000 bond. He is due back in court Feb. 25.
