HUNTINGTON -

A teenager pleaded guilty Wednesday to sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in Huntington village.

Daniel Adum confessed to the attack that happened just off Main Street last November.

Prosecutors say Adum approached the victim and her friend while exposing himself. They say he punched the girl and sexually assaulted her before taking off in a car.

Police arrested Adum less than 48 hours after the attack. Surveillance cameras captured the license plate on his getaway car.

Adum is expected to get 15 years in prison when he's sentenced in July.
