School Volunteer Charged With Molesting Teen Boy


A volunteer at a charter school has been arrested and charged with sexually molesting a young teenage boy, the second time in the past year the man has been implicated in harassing a minor. In addition to charges related to abusing the fourteen-year-old alleged victim, forty-seven-year-old Mark Citro also stands accused of impersonating a police officer.

According to court documents, Citro, who claims to be a minister and served as a mentor at the Friendship Academy of Engineering and Technology, became close to the victim and arranged sleepovers with the boy under the auspices of enabling the teen to walk to school. Police say Citro forced the boy to watch pornography, touched him inappropriately and performed lewd acts while the boy watched. The boy's mother, who has not been named by press due to the nature of the charges, confronted Citro about the alleged ongoing molestation. When questioned, Citro told the woman that he was an investigator working with both city, state and federal agencies to apprehend child molesters and that the boy had seen him doing research. To support these claims, he showed her badges and firearms.
