Glen Cove man charged with sexual abuse


A Glen Cove man was charged with sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. He was arraigned at the First District Court in Hempstead on Nov. 22.

Jim Masiakos, 58, who lives on 22 Reynolds Road, was working from his home on Aug. 22 as a modeling photographer for children. He was in the process of taking measurements for a 10-year-old female victim when he inappropriately touched her. The victim, who lived in Montana, notified her family of the incident when she returned home. Her father then reported it to their local police department, and an investigation was initiated by the Nassau County Special Victims Squad.

Masiakos was placed under arrest without incident. No injuries were reported at the scene.

Detectives request that anyone believing they may have been a victim of Masiakos to contact the Nassau County Special Victims Squad: (516) 573-4022 or dial 911. All callers will remain anonymous.
