Man charged with abuse, covering it up

COLONIE - A childcare worker is accused of abusing a teenage boy and then trying to cover it up.

Police say Erik Cargile of Albany, is facing assault charges, endangering the welfare of a child, and tampering with public records.

He is employed at Saint Colmans Home on Haswell Road in Colonie.

The New York State Justice Center says a staff member there called a tips line, reporting that Cargile got into a fight with a 14-year-old last month.

Investigators say he slapped, grabbed, punched, and twisted the arm of the teen.
