Man dressed as skeleton allegedly assaulted boy in Fayette County
An arrest warrant has been issued for a Fayette County man accused of sexually assaulting a 7-year-old boy while the suspect wore a skeleton costume.
Matthew Paul Moore, 30, of South Union is charged by state police Trooper Heather Clem-Johnston with corruption of minors and indecent assault.
Moore was dressed in a skeleton Halloween costume, with a sex toy attached to it, during the alleged assault in November, according to a criminal complaint.
Moore allegedly accosted the boy in the bedroom of a house in South Union and placed the sex toy against the boy's mouth.
The boy's 11-year-old brother ran into the room when he heard his sibling shouting for him, according to the complaint.
The older boy then hit Moore, police said. The children's mother was at work at the time, according to the complaint.
The boys moved to Florida to live with another relative in December. Clem-Johnston filed the complaint after a Palm Beach County detective contacted her.
The two boys reported the alleged assault to a child protective services caseworker in Florida.
Charges were filed with South Union Senior Judge Robert Breakiron, who issued a warrant for Moore's arrest.
