Man Accused of Sexually Abusing two Children at a New York McDonald's

WATERVLIET, N.Y. (NEWS10) -

A Rensselaer County man is behind bars facing numerous charges for allegedly sexually abusing three young children.

Police are now concerned there are more victims out there.

Police want you to take a good look at this photo. It’s a mugshot of 59-year-old Kelley Tremblay.

He’s the same man seen in security photos taken from inside the Watervliet McDonald’s on August 26th. That’s when police say He sexually abused two young children ages five and seven.

Chief Spain: “We got a call from an unknown subject a make subject told us he had witnessed something disturbing between a male and a young child,” Watervliet Police Chief Mark Spain said.

Responding officers conducted interviews and reviewed the restaurant’s security video.

“It was pretty disturbing. Probably one of the most disturbing videos I’ve seen. Obviously, there was contact between the older gentlemen and the younger children.”

Spain says the children’s mother and Tremblay are known to one another, but it’s unclear why they were alone in his care.

The very next day investigators were knocking at Tremblay’s Brunswick trailer door.

He refused to come out and then began an hours-long standoff in which police say threatened to harm himself with a knife. It was resolved peacefully with Tremblay being placed in custody.

Neighbor, Robert Johansen says he had no inkling of why the police wanted Tremblay.

What’s even more chilling, that Tremblay is also facing charges involving a third local child.

New York State Police arrested him for allegedly sexually abusing a 7-year-old in the town of Grafton.

The mobile home community where Tremblay lived for three years has many young residents. He also lived in Waterford.

He is not a previously convicted sex offender; however, police are concerned there might be are more victims out there.

“If you know anything about this case please call us or the New York State Police.”

Tremblay is locked up in the co jail without bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Albany County Court this Friday.
