ALBANY -The Brunswick man accused of sexually abusing three children in two counties was in Albany County Court on Friday. Kelley Tremblay, 59, pleaded not guilty to three felonies while being arraigned on an indictment.

At the Watervliet McDonald's on August 26, surveillance cameras caught Tremblay, sitting near the Playland.

He's accused of touching a seven-year-old and a five-year-old there, and having oral sex with the five-year-old. It's still unclear how he knew the kids.

Tremblay pleaded not guilty to predatory sexual assault, a Class A-II felony, and two counts of first degree sexual abuse, Class D felonies.

"My client is charged with a crime called 'predatory sexual assault of a child.' It is probably one of the most serious crimes that is in the penal law of the state of New York," acknowledged Terry Kindlon with the Albany County Public Defender's Office. "We've entered a plea of 'not guilty.' We have a lot of work to do. We have to go through discovery and motions and so forth and before that's completed, I'm not in a position to make any additional comment."

Tremblay is facing a felony sexual abuse charge in Grafton too. He's accused of sexually abusing the 7-year-old daughter of a friend at a third party's house.

In court on Friday, he appeared to be recovering after police surrounded his Brunswick trailer over the weekend to arrest him.

Richard Falco, the manager of the trailer park on Brunswick Road, says Tremblay stabbed himself before police got to him.

"He said they're either going to kill him, or he's gonna kill himself. And he did stab himself pretty bad," said Falco.

There's a pool of dried blood at the door of Tremblay's trailer. It's being cleaned out as Tremblay remains in jail without bail.

"I tried to talk him out of it, and (police) let me talk for several minutes. I had no idea what was going on, nobody in the park knew, as far as I know. Nobody knew. We had no idea what he was being arrested for," said Falco.  

Falco says the trailer park is a tight-knit community and a nice place to live.  Neighbors say Tremblay seemed like a nice guy.  

"First, shocking and disappointment, and then sorrow. I mean, it's a sickness, the guy is sick," said Falco about Tremblay.

Falco says Tremblay was a friend, but understands concerns of those in the park.

"I'm for the women who live here and if we have predators in the park. They're not having it."

State police say more charges could be possible. They're hoping other people who saw Tremblay at McDonald's, or who know about other possible crimes come forward.
