Accused ex-D&C newspaper carrier supervisor once arrested for groping paperboys
A late supervisor of Democrat and Chronicle newspaper delivery carriers, who was accused in a recent lawsuit of sexually abusing a paperboy in the 1980s, was arrested in 1987 on suspicion that he was groping paperboys in a Greece doughnut shop.
Jack Lazeroff, the supervisor, was charged with disorderly conduct, a violation, according to the police report.
An employee of the shop, House of Donuts on Latta Road, told police that Lazeroff came into the store “almost daily with a young paperboy,” according to the report.
The report read that an employee described how Lazeroff would allegedly buy the boy a doughnut, then rub the inside of the boy’s thighs as the boy ate while sitting on a stool.
The employee “also stated that she feels the victims looks extremely uncomfortable at the time, and seems that he doesn’t know how to stop the suspect’s actions,” the report read. “(Witnesses) stated that they don’t know the name of the boy, but since then, the suspect has come into the shop with two other youths, and basically the same thing is happening.”
Police reported that investigators interviewed three boys who claimed to have been subjected to similar groping by Lazeroff. One of them was 13 years old, and another was 14.Find more information online here.
