Five men have been arrested in Pennsylvania involving the sexual assault of a male minor.
This horrific situation started back in 2009, when the then 9-year-old boy was forced to attend costume parties called “furry parties.”
Note that “furries” are odd people who dress up in animal costumes and identify as that particular animal.
It seems that the victim was brought to these “Furry Parties” by a male relative. At the party, the boy was taken to a bedroom and raped repeatedly by numerous men wearing animal costumes.
Apparently, 57-year-old Kenneth Fenske was identified by the victim as one of the men who sexually abused him. It seems that Fenske dressed up in a Red Fox costume and referred to himself as “Lupine.”
Fenske is incarcerated on $750,000 bail and is faced with charges including child rape, unlawful contact with a minor, and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.
Sources highlight David Parker is alleged to have begun taking the victim to the parties occurring at a Pennsylvania home. Parker is currently facing charges of child rape, possession of child pornography, and other offenses.
Jeffrey Harvey is facing unlawful contact with a minor, criminal use of a cell phone, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, and statutory sexual assault charges.
Two other men, Craig Knox and Stephen Taylor, were also arrested for their involvement in the sex with a minor parties. Knox has been charged with sexual offenses, and Taylor is looking at charges of bestiality and other related offenses.
According to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro there were likely other victims and there may be additional arrests:
“This is a horrendous case. It is deeply disturbing to me not only as attorney general of Pennsylvania, but as a father of young children. We care about this victim and all victims of sexual abuse. Our investigation is not done, and it is likely there will be more arrests. We believe it is likely there could be more victims out there from this ring of abuse. We want to help them and protect them from any further abuse.”
