Nasif Talukder is under home detention, faces 10 years in prison

From the US Attorney’s Office,

BUFFALO, N.Y. – U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Nasif Talukder, 22, of Buffalo, NY, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with sexual enticement of a minor, which carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles M. Kruly, who is handling the case, stated that according to the complaint, a 14-year-old girl (minor victim) met Talukder on Teen-Chat.org. Talukder offered her $100 to engage in sexual activity and the two made plans to meet. On the morning of March 30, 2024, an individual who knows the minor victim saw her getting into a vehicle later identified as Talukder’s vehicle. The individual contacted the minor victim’s parent, who then notified the Town of Tonawanda Police Department. A subsequent investigation resulted in Talukder’s arrest. A search of the minor victim’s phone recovered multiple screenshots of the “Teen-Chat.org” conversation between the minor victim and Talukder.

Talukder made an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah J. McCarthy and was released on home detention with electronic monitoring.

The complaint is the result of an investigation by the Town of Tonawanda Police Department, under the direction of Chief James Stauffiger and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia.

The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
