Town of New Windsor Police arrest Mark Edward Nelson age 61 of Newburgh NY,  after investigating a report of a male trespassing in a fenced in playground of a Nursery School in town. Two employees and two children were exiting the Nursery School out of the side door adjacent to the playground when the suspect approached them in the darkened area and attempted to make contact with them while in the playground school property. The women and children then retreated to their vehicle and left the area and police were later notified.

Mr Edward was located and arrested for Criminal Trespass in the 3rd Degree.

He was released without bail due to the Bail Reform Laws that prevent him being remanded to Jail.
