State Police Investigating Inappropriate Touching at Clarence Town Pool

State Police say they received a call from a Clarence mom claiming that her 8-year-old son told her he was inappropriately touched by an older man, Saturday afternoon July 18, as the boy showered in the men's locker room at the Clarence Town Pool.

Police say the mother also told lifeguards at the pool who attempted to locate a man matching the description offered by the boy, but they found no one.

As a result of this alleged incident, town of Clarence officials are requiring life guards to walk through the locker rooms during routine shift changes, as an added precaution.

State Police say they take the incident very seriously but at this time, have no suspects and are not releasing a description of a possible suspect.   Some parents in the town of Clarence have taken to the Internet to warn people about the alleged incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the State Police in Clarence at (716) 759-6831.
