A 61-year-old man is facing indecent assault and related charges for inappropriately touching an 11-year-old boy in Newtown Township in September.
Jeffrey Todd Lukens, of Buckingham Township, had been working as a contractor at the boy’s home, hired to remove bees from the basement.
Lukens began work on the project on Sept. 2, 2021, and invited the boy to assist him, offering him a partial bee suit to wear to protect his face and upper body, according to a criminal complaint.
The boy was on a ladder and using a reciprocating saw to remove the bee nest when Lukens began massaging the boy’s thighs. He then lifted the boy’s shorts and took a cellphone picture of his thighs.
