Serial kiddie flasher- was a teacher-caught by Mom
A gutsy Staten Island mom helped cops catch a serial kiddie flasher by chasing down the sicko - who turned out to be a city teacher, police said yesterday.
Jamie Giambrone was being hailed for her high-speed heroics in helping capture Joseph Morales, 28, who allegedly haunted local schools, exposing himself to girls and women.
Giambrone, 28, was picking up her 9-year-old, Gabriella, from Public School 36 on Wednesday when she saw Morales and recognized him as the creep who had flashed her in February.
He was sitting at the wheel of a gray Ford Escape with a twisted grin plastered on his face, pointing at his lap while he fondled himself, she said.
Giambrone had her 7-month-old son, Jason, and 3-year-old daughter, Gianna, in her white Chevy Tahoe Wednesday - but she didn't think twice about pursuing the potbellied pervert.
"I pulled a U-turn and said I'm gonna get him," she told the Daily News yesterday. "I said, I'm not stopping until I get the license.'"
Eventually, Giambrone was able to pull ahead of the other driver and cut him off long enough to copy down his license plate for cops.
Police traced Morales, an English teacher at Intermediate School 24, to the Staten Island home he shares with his wife, also a teacher, and their 8-month-old son. He surrendered.
Morales has struck at least six times since Feb. 26, when he first exposed himself to Giambrone, prosecutors said.
The youngest victims were 13-year-olds from IS 75 who saw him pull down his pants, yank up his shirt and say, "You want some of this?" authorities said.
Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
