BOROUGH PARK - Police have arrested a 19-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting two young boys at a Brooklyn synagogue.

Authorities say Mena-Chem Deutsch lured the children, ages 10 and 12, to the synagogue at 15th Avenue and 50th Street in Borough Park last week.

Police say Deutsch told one of the boys he needed help before allegedly molesting him in the building's basement.

It's unclear if the children have religious ties to the synagogue.

Deutsch faces charges of sexual assault in the first and second degrees, luring a child, unlawful imprisonment and second-degree harassment.
