A Hampton Bays man was arrested last week after Southampton Town Police said he sexually abused a 12-year-old girl.

Fabian D. Valencia, 36, was taken into custody at police headquarters at 9:37 p.m. on August 15 and charged with sexual abuse in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors.

Police said he inappropriately touched the girl, whom he knew. The incident took place at 11:30 p.m. on July 21 at an East Montauk Highway home, according to his arrest report.

Officers declined to divulge further details, citing the sensitive nature of the case.

Mr. Valencia was remanded to the Suffolk County Jail in Riverside in lieu of $5,000 bail following an arraignment in Southampton Town Justice Court. He is due back in court at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, September 12.
