The allegations are disturbing and those hearing the charges are shocked.
The alleged abuse happened at the Hoops Summer Camp on Aug. 31 in the 3700-block of Twin Lakes Court in Windsor Mill. Baltimore County Police say Tyrone Terry Jordan, 55, of Baltimore inappropriately touched a 14-year-old boy whom he coached.
“This is not a county schools camp. This is a private camp,” said Detective Cathy Batton, Baltimore County Police.
Police say the victim came forward and accused Jordan of abuse. According to WJZ’s media partner, The Baltimore Sun, it allegedly happened in the lounge area of the club. The Sun also states that after the alleged incident, an undercover officer posed as the victim and through text messages got Jordan to admit he touched the boy.READ MORE: Mayor Scott Lays Out Vision For Baltimore With Action Plan
Jordan was arrested when he apparently agreed to meet the teen at a school.
Residents in Jordan’s Gwynn Oak neighborhood were shocked to hear the charges against him.
“I’m very concerned about the kids around,” said neighbor Fred Jones.
“He’s never appeared weird or anything like that. He’s just a regular guy,” said neighbor Simone Hicks.
In 1997, Jordan was accused of a sex offense. He was not convicted but did plead guilty to misdemeanor assault.
“We are concerned about the possibility of additional victims,” said Batton.MORE NEWS: Anonymous Donor Pledges to Match Donations Up To $1,000 To Help Replace Stolen Salvation Army Red Kettle
