Prosecutor: Men in Animal Costumes Raped Child Repeatedly
By The Associated Press
WARMINSTER, Pa. — A Pennsylvania boy told state prosecutors that he was forced to dress as “Tony the Tiger” at perverse fetish parties in which he was repeatedly sexually abused by men dressed in animal costumes.
Prosecutors said the 14-year-old’s allegations paint a horrifying portrait of members of a child predator ring that took turns raping him at “furry” parties held in Bucks County beginning in 2009.
Police have arrested five people who they say were involved in the ring, a multi-state sweep that began when a federal agent lured the first defendant to what he thought was a meeting with a 13-year-old for sex.
The fifth person, a Quakertown man, was arrested last week. Kenneth Fenske, 57, was charged Friday with child rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and unlawful contact with a minor.
