New Smyrna Beach man accused of molesting neighbor

Child's grandmother was in another room

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. – A New Smyrna Beach man is accused of molesting a young boy while the child's grandmother was in another room, according to the New Smyrna Beach Police Department. 

The child and his grandmother were visiting their neighbor, 59-year-old John Young, Wednesday evening when Young offered the boy a brownie. The boy went with Young into the kitchen while his grandmother stayed in the living room. 

After about two minutes, the grandmother began to wonder why the two hadn't returned. When she went to the kitchen, police said the boy's pants were down and Young was molesting him, according to the charging affidavit.

The grandmother grabbed the boy to drive him to a local police station. While in the car, the boy told the woman that Young shoved a lollipop down his pants the day before, police said.
