NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (WESH) — A New Smyrna Beach man is accused of luring a 5-year-old boy away from his grandmother and then molesting him.
John Young, 59, is charged with lewd and lascivious molestation.
The boy’s grandmother told police that she and her grandson were visiting Young when he offered the boy a brownie and told the child to come with him. When the two didn’t return she went to check on them and saw that the boys pants were down and Young had his arms around the child, molesting him.
The grandmother said the boy told her that a similar incident had occurred the day before.
