GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – The Gloversville Police Department has arrested a man for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a teenage girl last year.
Police say 61-year-old John Johnson, of 18 James Street in Gloversville, was arrested Friday on charges stemming from the incident which took place October 3, 2012, when officers were alerted by Gloversville High School officials and coaches that he had picked up a 16-year-old girl and took her to his home.
