Pennsylvania suspect in pedophile ring arrested

According to WNEP16, the victim was allegedly abused starting in 2009-when he was nine- by at least four men who dressed up as animals.

Anyone with information is asked to call the state Attorney General's office at 1-800-385-1044.

"This case and these arrests cut across county and state boundaries, and the arrests would not have happened without the close, working cooperation of each of these law enforcement agencies", Weintraub said.

"[This case] is deeply disturbing to me, not only as a attorney general of Pennsylvania but as a father of young children", Shapiro said.

Among those arrested was 57-year-old Milford resident and business owner Kenneth C. Fenske, who was arraigned Friday in Bucks County on charges of child rape and related counts. Each of the charges are first-degree felonies.

The victim in this case is now in foster care and receiving therapy.

Fenske was part of a sick crew who preyed upon young boys and dressed up in furry animal costumes as a way to satisfy their sexual cravings, the local affiliate said.

Cops say the arrests came after years-long abuse of a young boy, who is now 14, at sex parties where men dressed as animals raped him.

Besides Fenske, these men face charges for sexual offenses against the victim: David Parker, 38, of Stroudsburg, Monroe County; Jeffrey Harvey, 40, of West Wyoming, Luzerne County; Craig Knox, arrested and charged in Virginia, but extradited to Pennsylvania; and Stephen Taylor, also arrested in Virginia in connection with the case.

Knox and Taylor were arrested in Virginia in the fall while Harvey and Parker were arrested in June, according to Philly.com. Some view this practice as a sexual fetish.

Charges filed against the men involved include multiple counts of child rape, possession of child pornography and statutory sexual assault.

Fenske is the fifth suspect to be detained after police busted the ring in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, 45 miles north of Philadelphia.

Parker, Harvey and Knox are in custody while Fenske and Taylor posted bail and await trial.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro believes there will likely be more arrests.

The investigation is ongoing and prosecutors believe the case may involve both more victims and more predators. You can also give an anonymous tip on the Attorney General website. He is the sixth person elected to the office, and was sworn in on January 17, 2017 as the Commonwealth's top lawyer and chief law enforcement officer with a mandate to ensure integrity and be the people's Attorney General.
