A 35-year-old Huntington store clerk who allegedly offered four children money if they exposed themselves was arrested Friday, Suffolk County police said.

Bitinkunar Patel charged with four counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Police said two boys and two girls between 11 and 14 years old walked into Jericho Convenience store at 7:20 p.m. and were approached by Patel, who allegedly inquired if they were wearing underwear. Police then alleged that Patel offered them money if they showed him their underwear and private parts.

Two Second Precinct Patrol officers responded and arrested Patel, police said.

Patel was released and is scheduled to appear at First District Court in Central Islip on July 7.
