A Bronx resident was arrested and charged late Thursday with luring and groping boys in three separate incidents in a park in the Bronx.
Greg Boyden, 37, was charged with providing indecent material to minors, acting in a manner injurious to a child, and aggravated harassment, police said in a CBS New York report.
The police claimed in the article that the incidents in which he is accused happened during daylight hours in Seton Falls Park in Edenwald, CBS stated, adding that the first incident occurred Aug. 8 when the suspect approached a 13-year-old boy and offered him money to carry his bags before groping the teen. On Sept. 17, the man used a similar tactic to grope a 15-year-old, followed by yet another incident on Oct. 3 that resulted in a 12-year-old punching the suspect in the face before he fled. None of the boys were hurt, CBS reported.
Police said late Thursday that Boyden was also connected to a fourth incident, according to CBS. Police alleged that on Aug. 1, he sent a photo of his genitals to a 13-year-old boy and called the victim to offer him money for sex.
The NYPD had released video footage in an effort to identify the suspect before making their arrest on Thursday.
