A local man, Christopher Boissard, who has been harassing and grabbing locals, in addition to shoving customers inside local businesses has now been charged with felony sex abuse.
Via DNA Info:
“An accused serial groper who has attacked and stalked a neighborhood mom continues to target other local woman — seemingly undeterred by restraining orders against him, police and his victims said.
Christopher Boissard, 25 — a deaf man who’s been arrested more than 30 times on various low-level charges — has three pending groping cases against him and a conviction for attacking and harassing his own father, court records show.
He has violated orders of protection barring him from going near his alleged victims at least six times, in a pattern neighbors worry could get someone killed.”
“Last fall, on Sept. 11, he fondled a woman’s breasts at the intersection of Manhattan Avenue and Freeman Street at around 9:30 p.m., according to prosecutors. He was arrested, and Judge Matthew J. D’Emic set bail at $500, which he posted, court records show.”
“Boissard fondled a woman’s breasts and shoved her inside a store near India Street and Manhattan Avenue, as workers at the store repeatedly asked him to leave, prosecutors said.”
“Workers at Manhattan Avenue’s Champion Coffee said that two weeks before Boissard groped Clare, police were called after he chased several women down the avenue, though no police report was filed.
He’s shoved customers inside local businesses, and sometimes walks in and screams before running out, witnesses said. Shopkeepers say they keep a watchful eye on Boissard.”
