Nassau Police arrested an Inwood man for allegedly drugging a teenage employee at his religious goods store and then proceeding to have sexual relations with the male victim.

According to the Special Victims Squad, the incident occurred on Jan. 3 at Botanica Inle Osain, an Inwood store owned by Daniel Miller. Miller, 44, allegedly intentionally drugged a 17-year-old male employee on his first day as an employee at the store.

These are just accusations people. You can't convict someone before they've been tried! Form an opinion after you've gotten the facts. As of now, there are no facts!
