Man lured boy to apply athlete's-foot spray and tickle his feet

A man from Upper Darby, Philadelphia, lured a 12-year-old boy into his house, where he covered the child's feet with athlete's-foot spray, tickled them and then examined the boy as if he were a doctor, according to police. When Paul Simon Jamrozik, 63, was finished, he made the boy promise to bring his friends along the next time so he could examine them, too, said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.

Instead, the boy told his dad, who called police. Jamrozik was charged with indecent assault, corruption of minors, unlawful restraint and luring. "He has no medical licence," Chitwood said. "He's a 'play' doctor." The boy was walking home from school on Monday when he passed Jamrozik, who was sitting on the front steps of his home.

Jamrozik, whom the boy recognized from the neighbourhood, told him to come into his house, Chitwood said. Once inside, Jamrozik locked the door and told the boy that he'd seen him and his friends break a glass table behind his house.  He told the boy that if he didn't let him examine his body for cuts, he would call police, who would put him in jail for two years, Chitwood said. Jamrozik allegedly had the boy take off his shoes and socks, lie on the couch and put his feet in the air.

He then put athlete's-foot spray on the kid's feet and rubbed and tickled them.Afterwards, he had the boy lie on his dining-room table, where he touched his body under the guise of an examination. Jamrozik pulled a stethoscope and tools from a brown bag to examine the boy's ears and nose, Chitwood said. When the boy asked to leave, Jamrozik told him he couldn't until he was done with the examination, police said. "He then picked up the kid's shoes, held them behind his back and made him promise he had to be back tomorrow with his friends so he could examine their bodies," Chitwood said.
