According to police, the boy was walking home from school Monday, when the alleged tickler, 63-year-old P. “Pat” Simon Jamrozik, told the boy to go inside the home he shared with his sister.
Once inside the home, Jamrozik reportedly demanded the boy remove his socks and shoes and lay on the couch. He then sprayed the boy’s feet with some sort of anti-fungal crap and started in with the rubbin’ and the tickling. This, police say, was done as Jamrozik massaged his own package.
After he’d had his fill of that nasty business, Jamrozik directed the boy to lay down on the kitchen table and lift his shirt so he could perform an ear, nose and throat exam.
“He started feeling the boy’s back, chest and stomach with his hand and used a stethoscope to listen to his heart,” reported Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. “Jamrozik refused to give the boy back his shoes unless he promised to come back with his friends to examine their bodies and would pay $20 or $30 each time they came.”
After spending nearly an hour in Jamrozik’s home, the boy was allowed to leave. He told his father of the alleged incident and police were called.
A search of Jamrozik’s home revealed several photos of other young boys displaying their feet, some of whom police recognized. The boys, not the feet.
“It’s predatory in nature,” Chitwood said. “This guy is sick. I mean, obviously he has some type of fetish with these young boys, and my concern is how much further this has gone, and are there any more victims out there that we should be talking to.”
Authorities also found a duffle bag with medical examination tools, rope, a dog collar and lubrication. And, for my sake, let’s hope that having those particular items in one general location is not against the law.
Police found some pornography in the clothes dryer, too, but didn’t specify what kind.
Jamrozik, unable to post 10 percent of his $75,000 bail, remains behind bars. He is facing a list of charges including luring a child, indecent assault, corruption of the morals of a minor, making terroristic threats and unlawful restraint.
Boy feet are icky. Just sayin.
